I'm sorry you're experiencing this but it's not uncommon.

This sounds like "night sweats" and you'll find many ladies complain of hot flashes and/or nightsweats due to the ovaries going into shock following surgery. It varies, considerably, as to how long they take to "wake up" again.

If you try a "forum search" (click right, on the second purple bar down, on the main page of this forum) you'll find many posts on the subject. You may also find it helpful to read our HS article <link> Ovaries Shutdown which explains in more detail.

If you find you can't cope, it might be worth having a word with your doctor who may be able to prescribe something temporarily to help relieve the symptoms.

Wishing you all the very best and I hope it settles down, very soon. Take care!

yes thats normal even when you keep your ovaries. they go into shock and a lot of women have menopause symptoms for a short period of time. mine lasted about two weeks. my ovaries have been working great since my surgery over a year ago.

Sounds like night sweats to me, hot flashes make me really hot but I'm not drenched in sweat, but with night sweats I get drenched and need a shower and new jammies. But this does pass when your ovaries wake up as said if they don't call your doc. Hang in there

I am 5 days post op after total abdominal Hysterectomy. I will be cold one minute and drenched the next. Then I get cold and it is worse because I am wet. I can relate to you darling. Best of luck

I'm 2 weeks post op and still waking up soaked. My body seems to have forgotten how to regulate temperature. If I'm not freezing, I'm dripping sweat.

I hope it's an aftereffect of the anesthetic. My doc isn't crazy about HRT because of my cancer issues, but at least she's willing to talk about it. I'll do that after Christmas if this keeps up.

From what I've read (and experienced), this is fairly normal. Even though I kept my ovaries, I had severe night sweats the first couple of weeks post-op. Could be after affects of meds, or just the fact that it takes the ovaries a little while to wake up following surgery. The good news is I'm now 4 months out and no longer having these issues.

Best wishes and Happy Holidays!

Thanks for the info. ladies. When I mentioned this to my sister-in-law (she had a hysto many years ago) she said, "Welcome to menopause." My 1st thought was, "But I KEPT my ovaries!" So it's good to hear that this is normal. I've had to change my pillowcases 2x and of course my jammies cuz it's been so bad!

I was sweating like a stuck pig at the hospital -- but then the housekeeper found that the thermostat in my room was set at 80 degrees! I haven't really been all that cold since my surger.
