Age-related questions, post hysterectomy

I am 65 years old and just had a hysterectomy one week ago, including removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes due to a pre-cancer condition in my uterus. I was told that my ovaries were doing nothing for me and not producing hormones anymore. Will I experience any of the symptoms that younger women experience when their ovaries are removed?

Age-related questions, post hysterectomy

I am 59 but didn't go into menopause until I was 58. At that time I was suffering slight hot flashes. After my total hysterectomy, I began having severe hot flashes. Guess I still had estrogen before the surgery. Since you were told your ovaries were not producing hormones, you may escape these horrible flashes. My ovaries were still working and I guess that is why my fibroids were still growing. I hope you don't get the flashes.

Age-related questions, post hysterectomy


I'm 56 and I was in menopause for about two years before my hysterectomy last month. I had moderate hot flashes during my menopause and I haven't had any new symptoms after they removed my ovaries. I feel pretty much the same as before it.

Mochapep, Glad to hear that you feel pretty much the same. My hot flashes have turned into Fire Flashes since my total hysterectomy. Can't and won't take hormones. And now I have heard that soy, black cohorsh should not be taken if you have kidney stones, which I have. Are you taking hormones, or anything for the flashes?

Age-related questions, post hysterectomy

Thanks for the info. I finished menopause at the age of 52 and really didn't have any symptoms. Now that I don't have any ovaries anymore at age 65 I wondered if I might expect some changes in how I feel.
