Night Sweats

Prior to my surgery I had an occasional night sweats however, since my surgery I have experienced some intense night sweats. I feel as thought I drenched from head to toe. I have been sleeping with a light blanket and the ceiling fan is on full blast. Any suggestions?

Night Sweats

I have had the same. although they are not as frequent now. I was able to keep both of my ovaries. So they will hopefully wake up soon. Did you keep our ovaries? the only thing that I noticed that help was not to take my stonger pain meds right before I went to bed. when I was taking my vicodin I had them every night real bad, I switched to tylenol pm and that has helped. not really sure why. but it could be worth a try. I would try when your ready to try something not so first priority was handeling the pain. but after week 2 this should help, it did for me. If you wernt able to keep your ovaries then I'm not sure if it will help at all. If it gets intolerable I would call your dr. hope you find relief soon.

Night Sweats

I had the night soakers the first two weeks post-op. I think it may have been partially connected to getting all of the anesthesia and pain meds out of my system as well as the hormonal thing. (I kept both ovaries). Mine were so bad one night I had to change pjs 3 times. After the 2nd wk they gradually faded away. I haven't had one like that since about mid wk3. I get warmer at night than I used to but thankfully it isn't enough to warrant getting out of bed. My crying jags got better after about wk4, too. It is uncomfortable and even maddening at times but I think it is part of the healing process. I agree that if it gets unbearable you need to talk with your doctor.
I found an oversized T-shirt type night gown at Walmart that was really comfortable and seemed to help keep me dry.

Night Sweats

Thank you two for your input. I also kept my ovaries and did experience the night sweats prior to surgery but never this intense. I hope it subsides because I am bathing in the morning (because I am so drenched) and evenings (this is my normal alone bathing time. )

I haven't experienced the crying (HUGS) but sometimes just got upset for no apparent reason.

Hang in there.

Night Sweats

I am now 8 wks postop. I had really bad night sweats for the first 2 wks, then not so bad ones for week 3 and now have only had the odd one or two. I was glad that mine have pretty much subsided and I hope the same for all of you.

Cant believe its been 8 wks lol
