Ovaries in shock after surgery? Even after a tubal?

Okay, I am having horrible hot flashes at night. Just last night, I went to bed with pj's and fuzzy socks. Woke up this am with only bra and panties on. PJ's were tossed left and right and I have yet to find my socks! haha

I was left with both ovaries (thank goodness) and have read on this site that ovaries can go into shock. Would this be true of someone who has had a tubaligation previously? It would seem to me that they have not been connected, for 10 years in my case, so why would the ovaries react now? I cannot wrap my head around that...

If anyone has experienced this and possibly has an explanation, I hope to hear from you.

You are not alone!!! I also had issues with night sweats and emotionalism during the first 3 weeks.
LIke you, I've had a tubal as well. My tubal was done when I had my ablation done, almost a year before my TLH. I was able to keep my ovaries when they did the TLH.

The fallopian tubes act as a roadway for the released egg to travel to get to the uterus. The tubal blocks that pathway. Your ovaries still produce hormones and ovulate. Your body absorbs the egg that is released.
During surgery they manipulate your ovaries quite a bit and they due tend to go into shock. They should kick back in soon. At my three week check up I was still having problems, she told me to give it another couple of weeks. About 4 days later I noticed the hot flashes started to diminish and I wasn't as emotional. About a week after that, I think the ovaries went into overdrive as if going through puberty again. My face broke out, and my breasts became very tender. That too has finally subsided.

This is one thing I wish I knew before I had surgery! Things will get better soon.

4 weeks after my tvh I as having horrible hot flashes. They lasted a few days and oddly my Dr told me to drink some soy milk. I started drinking chocolate soy milk and they stopped... He said they were probably in shock and it would help them.. Hey for $2.50 it was worth a shot!

I hope you get some resolution because they were just horrible!

I've heard soy does help as barelysane mentioned and I think flaxseed oil is another remedy. I didn't end up needing to try either. Good Luck!

Your tubal does not stop your ovaries from working, it just stops the eggs from going where they want to be! I had a tubal three years ago but it did nothing to help with the night sweats, hormone swings, etc. I think, and I could be wrong, but that as long as your ovaries are working all the hormone symptoms will come along with it. I went on the pill to try to stop the endo from growing and with that, once we found the right one, I did get some relief from the crazy hormones. I'm 11 days post op from a LAHV BSO and I'm not stuck in hormone hell again - even without my ovaries! My doc gave me a shot of Depro and I swear, I will never allow him to do that again!

I realize that a tubal does not stop ovaries from working. I had a tubal 10 years ago and had no effects such as hot flashes and emotions. I strictly had the tubal because I was done having children. Not long after the tubal, the pain and heavy bleeding started.

Finally, after 10 years of deciding and trying other options, I finally gave into a hysterectomy.

I guess my understanding is that if you have healthy ovaries that you do not have to deal with 'crazy hormones'. I thought night sweats, etc, came with the loss of hormones (ovaries)...

Maybe I am misunderstanding you? Not sure...

My real question is, if I still have 2 healthy ovaries, why do they seem to have stopped after this surgery and were not phased by the tubal? Also, will they get back to normal and how soon?

I am 5 weeks post op, kept ovaries and am going through night sweats, day hot flashes and acne. I am soaked from 3am-8am and having flashing from 2pm-8pm. This stinks and I want my money back.

I too am about 3 weeks out and about 4 days ago the hot flashes started, only at night though. I too start out with layers on and end up taking them off only to hunt for them a couple hours later. I have also been having jumpy legs - having a horrible time falling to sleep and am lucky to manage an hour of solid sleep at a time. Also yesterday I started having some lower back pain and had a bought of diareha. Not sure if they were related. My back bothered me all through the night last night but feels a little better this morning. I also have a pressure sensation around what I think is the urethra. No fever but a bit of itching down there. I thought the itching was maybe coming from the discharge which now seems to be watery yellowish/pink. Is anyone else having itching or pressure. I don't think its a UTI at this point because no burning or pain when I urinate. I thought perhaps the pressure was because I did too much yesterday since it was my first day on my own and I in home baby sit. Yesterday was 4 toddlers!!!
