How long before menopausal symptoms?

I was wondering because I've read so many posts that have said they had hot flashes, night sweats, and so on right after surgery. I would like to know the average timeline when these symptoms will start?

I had my surgery on 2/1 and so far I believe I've only had a few minor hot flashes. I was having a hard time staying asleep when I first was home from surgery, but that was due to horrible nightmares, but now that is totally gone. I am also not taking any HRT. I am beginning to think if I'm fine (which would be a dream come true for me) that I won't be taking any HRT.

SassyCat,
I.m glad you asked because I've been wondering the same thing. I'm 50, had a TAH on Feb 6th, but haven't had anything really except for some night sweats (I had those before surgery). I keep waiting for the hammer to drop. So far, no HRT.

I'm 47 and had a LAVH/BSO on the 1st! You weren't far behind me! I've been waiting for the hammer to drop too! So many women I know tell me that I will know once it hits, but so far so good!

I hope I didn't jynx myself or you for that matter! *LOL*

How long before menopausal symptoms?

So pleased to see this question -my LAVH/BSO was just last Friday & my surgeon had suggested that in a worst-case scenario, the menopausal symptoms could kick-in within 48 hrs of my op !!

Have had a few hot flushes, but I think they have been more in tune with the 32 C hot days (here in NZ summer) than as a direct result of surgery - others have reminded me that these are just reactions to my anesthetic.

I have a follow-up appt in 2 weeks so am very curious to know what others are experiencing, what questions to ask - will I even be needing HRT ??

One other little question - silly maybe, but - does taking HRT result in breakthrough/period like bleeding ?? I have this funny idea that I will keep having periods.

Many thanks,Lyn

mantilla,

I do believe if you don't have a uterus then you won't bleed.

No question is a silly question

Thanks for that Sassy Cat - the things I have never needed to know before seem to become huge questions needing answers now I've had the operation !!

How long before menopausal symptoms?

I am starting to have menopause symptoms at 5 months post op, hadn't had them before and blood tests showed I was just "in to" perimenopause.

I am calling my gyno to get help....I'm so uncomfortable with the hot flashes, very little patience, not sleeping well, and having night sweats. I normally have the electric blanket on 5-6 with flannel pajamas. I cannot stand wearing any of that now...I don't think the blanket has been on in weeks now. I have also gained some weight...UGH!

How long before menopausal symptoms?

Hello ladies, My surgery was on Feb. 8th. and as soon as they took me up to my private room from recovery I started having hot flashes. I've never been one to sweat easily. I was just laying there visiting with my family and all the sudden I started sweating and feeling warm all over. It was like I couldn't get all the blankets off of me fast enough!! I wasn't sure if it was hot flashes or just shock from the surgery. My doctor came in and seen me and confirmed it what due to menopause so she started me on HRT immediatly!! I'm almost 3 weeks post-op and so far he HRT has done it's job!!
