Surgical menopause symptoms

Anyone out there have almost immediate surgical menopause?
I'm having hot flashes, night sweats, headaches and trouble sleeping. I tried black cohosh and it made my chest feel funny.
Anyone else dealing with these and what are you doing?

Surgical menopause symptoms


I just had my TAH/BSO last Monday (8 days ago), and feel nothing except PAIN!

I have been having night sweats, but that's nothing new. Had those for the last two years anyway.

I was just sitting there last night waiting and wondering when it's all going to hit!

Good News! The pain gets so much better! Tears hit me on day 8 when the Dr's office messed up my paperwork for my job. Then I had some bowel issues but those have passed. Cold packs on the belly helped me for the pain. The chillow covered my entire belly and wasn't "icy" but a nice cold feeling.I hope you start feeling less pain soon!

Surgical menopause symptoms

Just had my 3rd operation...I thought I was over all this, the last 2 times. This time they took all I had left, my right ovary. I have been so moody, crying, angry, sad, iserable, sweating, freezing....It has just been terrible. I do believe that it is menopause and I too would like to know what I am suppose to do. I have asked my boyfriend whom I love with everything to leave. Don't even remember what he said that made me so angry, but I am sure it wasn't worth my response. I have been wearing the patch since Saturday it doesn't seem to be doing anything, but then again I am just 5 days post op.

Surgical menopause symptoms

I had a TAH/BSO on June 28 and started noticing hot flashes/night sweats within a couple of days. I'm still having them, but they're not severe and don't last more than a minute or two. Now that the weather is cooling off, they are even easier to deal with. (Although if I had a husband/partner, I'm sure he'd be annoyed with me kicking off and then putting back on the covers all night long! LOL)

I had trouble sleeping at first, but that got much better after the first few weeks. I think most of my sleep issues were from having to sleep on my back until my incision healed. Once I could curl up on my side again, I was much more comfy.

I won't be taking any HRT (my hsyt was due to early stage endometrial cancer, which is estrogen-fed), but so far, I don't feel the need for any. My Dr. is very much in favor of no treatment except daily calcium supplements.

Yes, earlier I googled my achey scalp and headaches and got that I had tension headaches. Mine only affects the right side of my head. Advil, Motrin and Tylenol do nothing!!! This has to do with hormones. I didn't have it before surgery.

Surgical menopause symptoms

I am almost 4 weeks post op. They took everything. I have had night sweats, hot flashes, trouble breathing, headaches and trouble sleeping and feel like there is a lump in my throat since the start. They started me on the .05 V Dot which did nothing. They just upped it to .1 so I am hoping it will help. I am so miserable. I am just praying this gets better soon.
