Sleep problems post-op

I take Ambien and can go to sleep, I just wake up about 4 hours later and can't get back to sleep. I kept both ovaries so I don't know if this is just a temporary setback until my body gets in sync? Does anyone use progesterone cream that aren't on HRT and have their ovaries????

Yes, I have been on a compounded progesterone cream for about 8 years now. I was suffering from insomnia (& I mean not sleeping AT ALL for many nights in a row), hot flashes, night sweats & anxiety. It has helped me alot, although I still have occasional bumps, on the whole, life has been better. I've continued with the cream after my hysterectomy & seem to be doing ok, so far.

Just remember, any changes to your hormones take some time to adjust, so be patient & try not to expect perfection. Hormone balance is a really individual thing, so it takes time to get it just right for you.

Good luck!

I am only 8 days post op so hopefully everything will work itself out over time. Not really having any other issues like hot flashes, night sweats, depression or anger thank goodness!

Re: Sleep problems post-op

All the anesthetic & pain meds can mess with your sleep cycle. It should settle soon. It took me less than 2 weeks. I don't remember the timing, but I know I was sleeping about normally by the time I went back to work.

If I remember correctly, I started pushing myself to cut back on naps after a week, then the night sleep settled on its own.
