Hot flashes years after a Total Surgical Hysterectomy

Has anyone had hot flashes years after a Total Surgical Hysterectomy? Prior to my surgery I was having night sweats, etc. I'm 48 years old now, had surgery 4 years ago this month and have been fine till now. All of a sudden night sweats and other symptoms of menopause are happening again. Remember,I had a TOTAL hysterectomey. I'm not on any HRT. How can this be happening???? HELP....

Hot flashes years after a Total Surgical Hysterectomy

Hi Juddsgirl,
I'm sorry you are having these problems again. When you say Total do you mean they removed your ovaries also? My surgery was called a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy but I kept my ovaries. Confusing isnt it?!? If you still have your ovaries they could be shutting down as with Natural Menopause and if you dont have them this could be the effects of not taking HRT. Why this would just start years later, I dont know Have you been to The Hormone Jungle forum? There are alot of great Ladies over there who are very knowledgable in Surgical Menopause and HRT's. I'm sorry I couldnt be of more help. Hope you are able to find some answers and relief soon.

Hot flashes years after a Total Surgical Hysterectomy

Thank you for your reply. I guess I needed to be more specific. I thought by "TOTAL" that would imply everything was removed. Yes, my Cervix, Uterus, Tubes and Ovaries were surgically removed(is there another way? ;o)). I was at the beginning stages of menopause when I underwent Surgical Menopause. I did do some HRT for the first 6 months post op. The side effects were awful so I stopped. Now, 4 years later I feel like I'm going back into menopause, getting the sweats, etc., again. I don't believe it's possible yet when I mentioned this to a new Dr. I went to for something unrelated he said maybe your menopause is starting again. I explained to him I had a total hysterectomy and he said no more. I'm confused and can't seem to find any info in this.
