Need info about surgical menopause

Had total hyst + BSO a week ago. What will happen now? How fast will the surgical menopause hit me? Does it happen right away or is it during a period of days/weeks/or?

Scheduled for follow up visit with the doctor six weeks post-op.
Going to discuss HRT then.

But - what will happen hormonally until then?

Please, I will be most grateful for any help. Feeling very sad, lonely, confused and depressed.

I had a total hyst on Oct 21st, my symptoms hit me like a ton of bricks about 2 weeks post op. The hot flashes and night sweats have been crazy. I called the dr because I wasn't getting any sleep and she prescribed the lowest dose of Premarin. It has helped a little but I am going in today for my 6 wk post up so we are going to talk some more about it.
However, NOTE not everyone is the same, my friend had a total hyst a week after me and she has had nothing.
Hang in There and don't worry either as my dr told me stress and worry can tigger the symptoms too.
Take Care!

Some experience symptoms right after surgery. Others take a while longer. I was about 3 weeks out when the major hoy flashes and night sweats started. I had already had my two week check up anf wasnt waiting til my six week so I called and thet called in premarin for me. If you experience symptoms and dont think you can wait then give your Dr. a call. Good luck.

Re: Need info about surgical menopause

i had a total hyst in September and didn't have any symptoms of surgical menopause until I was 8 weeks post-op. Now I'm having hot flashes and night sweats. I'm dealing with it for now and that is pretty much my only symptom. It's annoying but I feel it's something I can deal with. Just hoping it doesn't last too long or get any worse. Best wishes.

Re: Need info about surgical menopause

Thank you for your replies! I guess I´ll just have to wait and see what happens.

I am not sure if to start HRT since my BSO was due to endometrioma (chocolate cysts).

This is all so new to me and I feel very confused and like I haven´t really grasped what has happened to me yet.
