Nightsweats increasing since hyst...

Hi girls...Anyone out there w/ bad night-sweats? I had them before surgery,but they are worse now. I woke up 2 times in 4 hours completely drenched & shivering. It takes my body quite a while to warm back up too. This is EXTREMELY sleep disruptive!! I won't sleep w/ dear hubby as it is as if I wet the bed! I kept my ovaries. I have used progest cream before, & it didn't work that great. Maybe I should try it again, & increase dose....it's pretty expensive though. How long after TAH should I get my hormones tested?? I know things are pretty "out of whack" right now,but for god's sake, I need my sleep!! HELP!!!

hi hollyrose, i know what you mean about needing your sleep. It's bad enough getting up to pee 3 times a night but to be awaken by soaken wet cold PJ's, not nice. My doctor told me not to use progesterone cream because I no longer have a uterus, it won't work. I started taking 1mg estradiol 1 week after my LAVH/BSO and it has help a little already. So give your doctor a call and get started on your HRT or search for herbal alternative. Good Luck

Thank you sissylala!!! Saw you on here before & thought the name was cute! I do not have a uterus either...interesting. I thought it was all about the ovaries. I'll check w/ dr. @ post -op in a few weeks. Take Care!

Im 4 wks post op today (LAVH) Kept my ovaries...The night sweats are crazy bad!!! I went off b/c pills years ago for what was thought a "reaction" either a mini stroke or sever migrain... So dont think I am a canidate for HRT ..My dr is hopeful I will feel better (more sleep) at my 6 wk checkup... I am going to start researching natural/herbal I guess... I am thinking we have to wait for a little time for the hormones to "settle down"...Please post again if your dr gives you any info on this...I would appreciate (as would my hubby) a good night sleep...Good Luck to you!!!

Shellyhart, I will definately keep you posted on this.... It is really miserabe indeed! I am so cold & wet when I wake up. It's like hypothermia!! Anyway, I have the feeling dr. will send me to the local "compounding " pharmacy in my area. They do saliva tests which are supposed to be more accurate. I definately know things are out of whack right now because I've been crying a lot. I'm usually not a crier, & never really understood women that are! Boy, we women sure have all the fun!!LOL......Take care,you are not alone!
