I’m 55 and had hysterectomy a month ago. Few days ago I have started having hot flashes, like in menopause. Are they due to hysterectomy or what? How long will I have to suffer them? Please post.

Hot flashes are due to lack of oestrogen. They occur when ovaries are removed. Hot flashes usually last about year, year and a half. Ovaries are responsible for hormone production; uterus has a little to do with it. Hope that helped.

Hi Folks: I'm 51 and had a total hysterectomy when I was 45. To date, I still have obnoxious hot flashes. It's been miserable!! With a combination of an anti-depressant (oh yes, depression kicked in after also!!) and an hrt, I have my decent times. Although, after a while of any one combination, the flashes start escalating again -- then onto another combination! At any rate, I'm thrilled for others who've had a shorter time experience, but WOULD LOVE to hear from anyone with thoughts and/or suggestions.
Thanks and take care.

I was looking for information on how long hot flashes last after hysterectomy because mine have been going on for 10 years. I thought this unusual but looks like probably not. Now I am depressed :-(

I am only 6 days out from a complete hysterectomy and cannot tell if I am starting to get hot flashes or not . . . so far not too severe, but I am getting sweating at night. I am 35 and elected to get this done to lower cancer risk that runs in my family.

About when do the symptoms start? Is it too soon already? I haven't seen anywhere that tells when to start expecting them . . .

Search the Internet for foods that trigger hot flashes. I have cut out alot of things that they say trigger them and it has helped. Also stress is a culpurt too. ;-)

Had a complete Hyst. 3 yrs ago. Have nothing left. I had stage 4 endo. all over my bowels and uterus. Taking NO hormones. Do not want them. I was very estrogen dominate.
My hot flashes have never stopped. They started hours after my surgery.
I instantly get one when I get upset. Married with 3 kids 10-16 yrs old so I can get upset alot...lol.
I can feel them start.. it is like a really warm feeling in my stomach that spreads and them I have one. If I am woken up suddenly in the middle of the night..bam it starts. My gyn. says they should be done by now. Granted he is a man.. %-)
But reading here I see I am not alone. Thank God ;-)
I swear some days in the winter I could run naked thru the yard to cool off. XD
Well..thats all ..Stay Cool!! :-D

i dont know much about when to expect symptoms to start. what i want to advise all women that have this proceedure, is to be very aware of the possible feelings of severe depression. my girlfriend has a total hysterectomy and 5 days later drove her car of a cliff and into the ocean in bodega bay. she survived, but with a broken back and possibly two years before she can walk again if ever. she was great before the surgery. HRT is usually not a good choose when you had cancer in the first place. please get all the information you can before surgery, and be fully prepared. god luck and god bless

Hi! I actually feel so much better after reading these posts. I thought I was all alone in my suffering! I started having very, very severe hot flashes within 2 hours of my hysterectomy! I was 34 years old at the time. They immediately started me on HRT, which I'd been on for about 7 years. Finally, I really read the information on what ingredients are in the HRT. I weaned myself off of them. I felt absolutely fine for two to three months. Then, WOW and WHAM, the hot flashes came back so severely that at times I'm afraid I'll actually pass-out! I am researching other "natural" treatments, but an not sure what to try. Any suggestions? Also, I wake up out of a sound sleep (several times nightly) just minutes before the "flash" (which is about 3 to 5 minutes long) starts. I lay there thinking to myself, why am I awake? and then it starts. I am very, very tired of these episodes. Anyway, thank you for sharing your stories and making me know that I'm not alone. :$

Hi,
I had a complete hysterectomy in November 1997 and the hot flashes have never stopped. I have them at night so bad that I wake up wanting to change the sheets.

I take a very low dose estrace. I tried to quit taking it one time and thought I would die. The hot flashes got worse and I wan't getting any sleep at all. Even with the low dose I still have the flashes and wonder if they will ever stop.

I laughed at the post that said she wanted to run outside naked in winter. I have stood on my porch and raised my shirt up (we live on a 200 acre farm) and steam came off my body. No kidding.

I am 16 years post TOTAL hysterectomy and have been on a HRT until about 6 months ago. The hot Flashes are getting worse by the day, and now disrupting my sleep very badly! Will the time come that they go away? I know they end with menopause but is it different with the HYST?
