WELCOME to The Surmeno Connection. We are an online resource and support group for women who are in Surgical Menopause due to surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or other medications. Please allow us to introduce ourselves and tell you a little more about who we are and explain how we came to be.
We are two women, from opposite sides of the country, who met when one of us began an online support group for surgical menopause. We have both had surgeries that placed us into this hormone jungle known as surgical menopause, and we quickly realized there was little dedicated information available for women living with this condition. Recognizing this need, we compiled whatever relevant information we could find that was both accurate and helpful. As we started answering questions on our online support group, we discovered other women were similarly struggling to feel less alone as well as find good information. So, we put our heads together and decided a website where women, doctors, partners and spouses could come to find information and support would be a wonderful service for those not knowing where to turn.
We are not doctors. One of us has a degree in nutrition and works in the arts, while the other teaches essential oils. We have our own experiences, as well as the thousands of experiences of the women from our support group. We have pulled the information for this site from sound resources and have compiled it together for you, in an easy to understand fashion. Hopefully, it will help you in working with your doctor to make the best informed decisions for your body and health. Our goal is to help every woman feel informed and never feel alone.
