Wish me a night without a sweat bath

I am 5 days post op and I am on the estradial patch, but have been sweating horribly up until today-and I am hoping it was the percoset. I have not taken anything since lastnight for pain and did have some sweating today while napping, but if anything the sweating is worse than any pain i have endured. Please wish me a peaceful night sleep, I really need one!!!I have to stop at docs office tomorrow for some forms so i will talk to her tomorrow if tonight is another sweat bath night, I didn't think this was supposed to be while on estrogen???

Set up the fan facing the bed, and sleep well tonight!

If it lasts longer, you may not be absorbing the estrogen from the patch, but never fear, there are so many estrogen replacement options out there: patches, creams, gels, sprays, vaginal rings, oral tablets, etc... definitely not a one size fits all for HRT!

Re: Wish me a night without a sweat bath

Jean,
You are still VERY early post op. Some symptoms, such as hot flashes and night sweats can be from fluctuating hormone levels as your body uses up its stored reserves of hormones and recovers from surgery.

I would not rush to change your ert just yet. I would suggest giving it some time and let your body recover from surgery.

My personal experience is that the night sweats were really bad during my early months post op. I recall having to get up in the middle of the night and change my night shirt because it would be soaked. I set a fan up next to the bed, kept a glass of ice water on the night stand and slept in a light cotton t-shirt. I also would not hesitate to get up and change underwear and t-shirt when they got soaked. The fresh clothing helped me to fall back asleep. That is; rather than laying there in wet clothes soaked to the bone, the dry clothing helped me to relax and drift off again.

I'm sending a and my wishes to you for a night's sleep.
