I had my TAH on 1/19/05 and have been having hot flashes. Is this normal? If so, How long does this last for? Wow! Im not looking forward to menopause!

I had mine on 1/6/05 and told my doctor I would get hot suddenly. He just said it was hormonal but I wasn't expecting this when I decided to keep my ovaries. I don't know how long it lasts either?

Hi Ladies;
Although I was not able to keep my ovaries I do know that they can take a while to "wake up" after surgery.

Here is a link that discusses your ovaries shutting down;

Best wishes to you!

Sleep is coming!

I am almost 41 (in March) and had hysterectomy and kept ovaries on 1/7/05. I had night sweats and difficulty sleeping for about 2 weeks. It has gotten much better almost non-existent now. I am moving around quite a bit now and I think that is when it started to get better. I am doing light walking and regular household activities, but also resting quite a bit. Hopefully, your ovaries will wake up soon too.

Thank yoiu very much for the info. I really appreciate it. I am only 26 years old and was in fear that I would have to go through menopause at this age. But it sounds like there is hope that things will get back to normal in time.

Thanks again.

Me too! I started actually soaking the sheets at night after the first two days of surgery...but that passed quickly. I am much warmer feeling now than before surgery. I mentioned this to my dr and she said it was normal. I am kind of enjoying not feeling I have been freezing feeling since my thyroid went bad in 94. So, I am enjoying being warm.

Take care,

Well, I'll be 8 months post-op in a couple of days - LAVH - kept ovaries. I didn't have any hot flashes but mostly night sweats and insomnia. It would come and go - I haven't had any of the nightsweats for a couple of months and the sleeplessness only occurs I think when I'm ovulating. EVERYTHING IS MUCH BETTER NOW!! Wishing you luck in your recovery and remeber to take it easy and drink your water!
