Hysterectomy left ovaries but now having night sweats

Hi Ronda:

I, too, still have my ovaries and I got night sweats for the first 2 1/2 weeks.
My doctor said my ovaries are in "shock" from the surgery (actually our whole bodies are!!). My night sweats and mini hot flashes lessened gradually. They still occasionally happen but don't bother me as much.

Hi Rhondakr,

I agree with 1Catlady...and it sounds like you have ~sleeping ovaries~. In post-op, the ovaries can sometimes go to sleep awhile due to the trauma of surgery. Side effects can include hot flashes, night sweats and moodiness. Generally, ladies report that it can last several weeks.

Sending best wishes~

Hysterectomy left ovaries but now having night sweats

I didn't have night sweats until week 5 or 6, now it's a regular occurence. How do I explain that? Will drinking soy milk or eating soy help? It's really annoying in the winter when you want to wear pj's to bed, but have to rip'em off in the middle of the night. Anyone else not have sweats, then have them, then not?

Hi rhondakr

Yes, I think the night sweats thing is common. The "sleeping ovaries" thing makes sense. I had TAH because of fibroids on Oct 23. the first few nights I was OK, then after I got home, I had about a week of night sweats - went through lots of PJ's ! Then it just faded away and now, no problem.

Hang in there - I'm sure it will get better!
