I survived cancer to be beaten by migraines.

I’m 43 and recently had a total hysterectomy including ovaries due to cancer and the sudden change in hormones has caused a debilitating increase in these migraines. I could handle cancer and even the pain of a headache but how can I continue normal life, especially teaching when I can’t talk or move throughout the day several days a week? I can’t take hormone replacement because of the cancer. I’m increasing my topamax… trying metroprolol… it’s a waiting game to see what works or if my body regulates.
