symptoms of menopause with "total hysterectomy?"

I had a total hysterectomy--removal of all but ovaries--two years ago at age 39.
My gyn. said after the surgery that he predicted I'd be coming to him in about 2 years with symptoms of menopause.
Well, nearly two years to the date, i think I'm having symptoms, but how can you tell when there's no uterus? What should I be experiencing?
Here is what I AM experiencing--everything I used to have with my period, except the period itself. I have bloating, some tenderness and cramping, hot flashes, flushed face. This is exactly what I used to go throught with PMS. Is this normal for someone who has had a hysterectomy??? Should I be concerned???
I have made an appt. with the dr., but won't be seeing him until the end of next week. Anyone who can tell me what's going on--if they've experience the same thing--I'd appreciate it.

For a good description of Menopause you should read the checkpoint on menopause. It is located here http://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/view_menopause.htm

I hope this helps.
