hot flashes normal? And no vaginal disharge normal?

I am not quite a week out from my hysterectomy. It was done the 8th and today is the 13th.
I have been getting horrid hot flashes all day. I had 1 ovary removed and the other was cauterized to remove endometreosis. Is it normal to have hot flashes? I may have overdone it today because I had to go have the staples taken out then went to the grocery then saw my therapist so maybe that is why?

Also I was expecting to have vaginal discharge but so far have none. The nurse at the hospital said the doctor probably cauterized it so maybe that is why. Does this mean I just won't have any discharge or am I going to get a surprise in a few days?

Re: hot flashes normal? And no vaginal disharge normal?

I had a TVH on the 8th. I have only had discharge when I wipe. I have both my ovaries, but have had slight hot flashes here & there. Depends on what I've been doing. From what I have read, the surgery can kind of 'shock' your ovaries and hot flashes & moodiness can occur. Things should calm down soon!

Re: hot flashes normal? And no vaginal disharge normal?

I had a TAH one year ago, and I never had any vaginal discharge. I also started having hot flashes before I left the hospital!

For me, the hot flashes were bad for about 3 months, and then they calmed down quite a bit. I can't take HRT, so that was something to be grateful for.

Hope that helps!

Re: hot flashes normal? And no vaginal disharge normal?

Thanks for the replies. I was worried that cauterizing the remaining ovary might have caused it to decide to not work. But hopefully it's just shocked. I was so angry during the hot flash and I felt bad because I had no reason to be angry I just was.

I can't help with the discharge since I had an LSH. But I wanted to let you know that I kept both ovaries and still had hot flashes in the beginning. I am almost 4 weeks post op and they have stopped.

Good luck to you!

Re: hot flashes normal? And no vaginal disharge normal?

I had no discharge until I overdid on lifting and squatting. Then I had light spotting plus some granulation (had to have silver nitrate once). Now that it is healed, nothing again :-)

I get my hot flashes at night, while I'm sleeping. Not the drenching night sweats I had over the last 2 years; just an overwhelming rise in temp.

I had both ovaries removed, so mine is definitely menopause.
Your ovary may have been shocked/stressed by the surgery and all--it may take a while for it to get back in the game.

I'm 9 weeks now and have had no bleeding or discharge at all, not even after intercourse. I kept my ovaries but did have bad hot flashes for the first 3 weeks.

Re: hot flashes normal? And no vaginal disharge normal?

Thanks for the replies. I have been so moody! It's not even funny. I had more pain today than I have had but I over did things a bit too. I am not patient with healing. It's really hard for me to be down like this.
