Hi, I am new to this board! I am brca2 +. Recently, I had my ovaries and tubes removed for ovarian cancer protection because I am at such a high risk. This means that I am now in menopause at the age of 41. Losing weight has seemed very difficult lately because of this. I am considering doing the HCG diet (the injections) and I have an appt in a few weeks with a doctor at her center.
I am wondering what she will say about me being brca2 + and if i will be able to do the diet at all. I have never had cancer and being brca2 does not mean I will get cancer, I am just at a higher risk for certain cancers. Thoughts?
