When does surgical Menopause hit?

I am two weeks from a Radical hysterectomy and have no symptoms at all, I feel great. When did you all start to feel the lack of estrogen?

Re: When does surgical Menopause hit?

It all depends on how much stored estrogen your body has. Those who have more body mass usually have more stored estrogen. It hits everyone differently. It hit me about 4 days after surgery to remove ovaries but my estrogen levels were already very low before the surgery.

Thank you. I think my estrogen level must have been high before surgery. My bras were getting small, now they fit again.

Mine was about ten days after surgery but I had high levels pre op. Wish someone had told me to lay of the the oestrogel prior to my op to avoid having the mighty crash that I did!

I'm six weeks out and have... nothing. I had quick mood swings for about two weeks, but now nothing. No more migraines. No hot flashes. No acne.

Still waiting....

I had about 2-3 weeks of feeling good and then bam! As said before everyone is different, this surgical menopause stuff really bites. Good luck and stay close to this website, there are so many wonderful people here that will be there for you.

Re: When does surgical Menopause hit?

My symptoms showed up gradually after about 7-10 days from my TAH BSO, but I was perimenopausal before my surgery. I am now 29 days post op and am wondering if this is it, or do more symptoms come later? Any thoughts from the sisters out there? My current symptoms are nights sweats (2-4 episodes per night), some minor hot flashes, and this weird sweaty feeling band (although no actual sweat exists) around the back of my neck. And of course irritability at things that definitely deserve it!

Re: When does surgical Menopause hit?

sounds like it. Ive never sweated since day after op (before I was very sweaty!) i just get very very very warm, starting in my ears, then face, then nexk then, hands, when i have a flush I get a strange feeling of doom too and threw up with them before my levels got up a bit. i did have an awful crash though, you sound like you will have a more gentle introduction xx

Re: When does surgical Menopause hit?

I was coming here to find the answer to the same question. I'm 10 days post-op and had some hot flashes yesterday. I looked to see if there could have been another reason and nothing seemed to apply. Good luck to you!!! Maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones and not have any issues.

Re: When does surgical Menopause hit?

I had my total hysterectomy almost 3 yrs ago, and still have no signs of menopause - Some friends say it's because of my psychiatric medications, but I'm not sure - I think that Mother Nature decided to be nice to me after the years of agony I went through.
