My surgery was on Feb. 7th and I started getting hot flashes and night sweats about 2 weeks after. I might have been getting them sooner at night and didn't realize because I had so many blankets on I thought I was just hot from that : )

Good Luck!

I notice you had surgery two weeks ago - how are you feeling? I'm not on HRT due to Endo and my doc said I couldn't take anyhing for at least 7 months - I'm almost two months out. Not sleeping is the worst for me. Are you on HRT?

Hi ladies, no, I am not in HRT due to endo, the doctor says he took all the endo out, but I am so afraid that this disease is going to come back that I am going to try (if need to) natural medicine to deal with menopause symptoms. but as of yet, has not felt any symptoms, besides hot flashes and moodiness, what else is there.?

Count yourself lucky!! Mine started within a week of surgery (2/4/08). The worst for me was the night sweats and the crying. I am not an emotional person normally so the crying drove me nuts. My doctor recommended Estroven and thankfully it has helped with everything but the hot flashes.

Good luck!!!

I had hot flashes and insomnia the first few nights after surgery, but they've leveled off to every once in awhile--mostly when I'm stressed about somethng. I'm hoping keeping my fingers crossed it doesn't get any worse.

hot flashes

I asked my doctor yesterday about going through it all because I was having a heck of a lot of hot flashes, night sweats, etc, before the surgery. All of those things have completely stopped. He told me to keep my fingers crossed because I may not have them again. I had everything taken out and he doesn't want me to go on HRT because he had to leave some endo on the ureter. He was afraid he would damage it and cause more problems. He said if I could stay off HRT then it would dry up.
