Just wondering....kept both Ovaries but am having night sweats. Had my TVH on last Monday(06-08-09), doing very well, but am starting to have night sweats. Is it me or do I just need to turn down my thermostat? No fever, bowels is open, drinking LOTS of water, not on pain meds, what else should I be doing?
Just wondering is this something that comes with the TVH post-op territory. My back is also bothering me, but I do have a really, really bad back with DDD & OA of my lumbar spine.(oh yeah, DDD stands for degenerative disc disease).
I had a few of those nights during the first couple of weeks after surgery. Cold going to bed, waking up wet with sweat! I kept my ovaries too. I'm now 4 weeks out and I haven't had one for probably 10 days or more! Yeah! Good luck to you!
I still sometimes have to kick the doona off in the middle of the night due to being suddenly hot - but I've always been a little this way so am not sure if it's a hormone thing or not. I think my ovaries are still a little sleepy though, am still quite emotional at the drop of a hat. So you are definately not alone in this.
Hello...it took my ovaries 3 months to wake up from surgery.....as time went on the night sweats and hot flashes became less and less....our bodies have to go through so much readjusting after this surgery....give it time, you will get there.
I'm a little over 10 weeks out and the past 2 nights are the first that I haven't had night sweats. They ended up putting me on a hormone patch even though I kept both ovaries. Hormone tests were normal. What you're going through is normal. I even experienced panic attacks, depression and insomnia with mine. Still trying to move on from all of this.
I'm three weeks post surgery and have my right ovary. Night sweats and hot flashes started about a week ago and have been getting worse. I go back to work in a week and won't be able to rip off my clothes or jump in the shower if they hit!
Should I just wait this out or ask Dr for something?
