Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy and night sweats

hysterectomy

MY WIFE AGE 74, HAS NIGHT SWEATS MOSTLY FROM HER HEAD AND SHOULDERS. SHE WILL TURN OVER HER PILLOW, AND LATER GET ANOTHER PILLOW. SHE SOMETIMES HAS CHILLS AFTER THE SWEATS THAT ALSO SOMETIMES OCCUR DURING THE DAY. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR ABOUT A YEAR. SHE DOESN'T SEEM TO GET ATTENTION FROM DOCTORS. ONE DOCTOR ADVISED HER TO SEE AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE DOCTOR. ANYONE'S OPINION MAY HELP.
Especially if you have had a complete hysterectomy and are experiencing night sweats. I was going through the same thing, first on one hormone pill and then another, until I went to an OBGYN who explained to me that the medication of patches go directly into your blood stream. Unlike the pill. I am 61yrs. old and have been having night sweats, when I wasn't on some form of estrogen taken in pill form. I am now on one of the stronger mg. of the hormone patch and I am doing great.
Symptoms of premenopause are irritability and mood swings,hot flashes,night sweating,irregular periods,decreased blood loss during periods,dry vagina,breast heaviness and tenderness and joint and muscle pain. Treatment is by hormone replacement therapy.
Your best option is discuss with your doctor. I get night sweats (doctors can not figure them out), but no vomiting. I am not in meno paus either. The throwing up IS NOT NORMAL....Please go to your doctor.
I never had night sweats with menopause and have a hysterectomy. My sheets, pillow and nightgown are soaked every night for over a month, but I am cold. I kept forgetting to tell my doctor. I am calling tomorrow. Not to jump to conclusions, but I read that this is a sign of lymphoma. I just had a CT Scan and they said my lymph nodes were fine. Has anyone else had this with cancer in general. I was on Carbo/taxol, but it has been a month off and now am 5 days into Doxil.
Once I was dx'd hypo and put on med, I noticed that the sweats got fewer and less severe as my levels go better. Now, I have night sweats when my levels are off, but usually only once or twice/night as opposed to 5-6 times/night I used to get them.
When I started, I was also taking bioidentical progesterone, estrogen mix and DHEA to control hot flashes and night sweats, which it was doing very well. Once levothyroxine came in, the flashes and night sweats came back with a vengeance and I had trouble sleeping.
I too have been having night sweats and massive body aches. Heart palps and chest pains are back and my ovaries are awake and sore again also. I'm guessing they are thyroid related. As far as why I'm sorry and don't have a clue. I had these same symptoms 3 years ago. I don't believe it is the change of life thing anymore. That is one yet to endure. LOL. I am curious on this myself. I hope you receive an answer to this. Sorry I'm not much help. Take Care.
I love you all!! Forget my night sweats thank god I'm only 26 and not going through menopause! You all made me forget all about it.
I am 52 years old and have started to suffer from night sweats. Could I be going through menopause or could it be something more sinister that I should get checked.
I have been having really bad mood swings no motivation night sweats I had a hysterectomy in Feb. I still have my ovaries.
I am 5 weeks post op after hysterectomy but after suffering a few night sweats, my doctor gave me Premarin oral HRT. It is 5 days now and although the night sweats have eased, my acne has become worse. My doctor said that this eostrogen alone hrt may help the acne, do I need to give it chance? Is it normal to get worse before better?
I have had no relief of night sweats or hot flashes. I will sweat in cold weather. I will have night sweats even though i have A.C. turned down low. Im so tired of this. I have tried hormone treatment...to no avail. Any comments or suggestions will be much appreciated.
I am almost 40 years old, had my uterus and cervix removed ( kept my ovaries) almost 2 years ago. I have been experiencing hot flashes, night sweats, trouble getting to sleep, forgetfullness, and was told by my gynecologist that my vaginal tissue is very thin and fragile. I had my FSH tested and it was at 2. Do you have any ideas as to what my be causing these symptoms?
Never took any medicine or hormones after. No problems. Now I'm having miserable hot flashes and night sweats. Is this menopause?
Are you having any problems now with menopause, like night sweats and mood swings? With you high HPV risk you should be getting paps done on a very regular basis. Are you taking any thyroid meds? Sorry about all of the questions but the more we know the better we can help you.
Hello, Night sweats,chills and joint pain are all features of menopause.Other symptoms are irritability and mood swings,hot flashes,night sweating,irregular periods,decreased blood loss during periods,dry vagina,breast heaviness and tenderness and joint and muscle pain. I advise you to consult your gynecologist and start with hormone replacement therapy after confirming the status of your menopause.
after my hysterectomy 2 years ago i have hot flashes and night sweats it is severe i have tried everthing at the wal mart pharmacy over the counter nothing is working im going crazy pls help me on wat to do
I have never had any bleeding so I do think you should talk with your doctor about that. My main problem is controling hot flashes and night sweats. I've tried 3 different non HRT prescriptions (clonidin, Effexor, Cymbalta) and the side-effects are not worth the relief from the symptons. Has your doctor said anything about going on estrogen replacement? Mine is reluctant because she said it could cause endo to re-occur elsewhere in my body. are you having any menopause symptoms?
I came into her office one day from work and happened to have my Iced Tea with me (that I drank 24/7) and she asked me about my habits with Coffee and I told her that I didn't drink ANY coffee BUT I did drink Iced Tea (ALL of the time) and she suggested that I stop as the Caffeine would cause the Night Sweats and OTHER symptoms. SOOO I quit ALL caffeine and within a week and a half to two weeks ALL symptoms had ceased!!!
So I decided to change my life and quit doing things that I know are poison to my liver and start taking natural meds that are good for my liver and I also quit the HRT and all of a sudden the night sweats were reduced dramatically and even stopped. I started tx Dec. 27 and I do notice that I now have the night sweats sometimes but not nearly as bad as they were.
hormones, but feel that I never responded properly to them. Never lost night sweats, poor sleep, weight gain, low energy. Have had thyroid removed completely and am followed carefully by endocrinologist. Will have gyn. repeat hormone panel before I do anything. Awaiting results of pelvic MRI to see WHATS bleeding, fibroids or uterus. Gyn says the result (hystectomy) will be the same. Says that the surgery to remove fibroids is much more involved than doing the hysterectomy ?
So I was hypothyroid at the time and had night sweats. When I was on Synthroid for 10 years, the night sweats diminished but the more common symptoms did not. In the last few months I have tried other meds, and had night sweats returned at first. This time I had hyper symptoms that mostly went away as I got use to the newer thyroid med. Seems like I got the sweats from hypo and hyper. Fine now.
I went to my doctor and ordered a TB and HIV test, and that's because when you google night sweats everything that is fatal comes up first.LOL. And that freaked me out. Thank GOD that the test were negative. Then I started to wonder if it was premenapause. I just dont know, I guess this is more common then I thought.I hope we all find out why we got the sweaties!
Your Thyroid may well be the crux of the problem, mine was overactive and sent me into congetive heartfailure. I had the night sweats and pretty much the same symtoms each of you has had, covers on, covers off, I was almost crazy. I already had copd and had MRSA and pseudomonis(Look it up, it's nasty) in my lungs. So, I was a mess to begin with. I have a medical background and knew that suddenly I was having symptoms of congetive heart failure.
Anyways, it had grown back bigger and got a second mass growing on there as well, and my periods were coming very painful, very heavy, and very often so they removed my uterus. I now get woken up in the middle of the night with the need to change because I am just drenched. Should this be happening when I still have my ovaries? It didnt start right away, as a matter of fact it has only been the last 4 nights that have been bad. Any suggestions?
Hi me again Do any of you suffer from night sweats i soak the bed 3-4 times a night and have to change put towels on the sheets its so embarrasing this happens during the day too cold sweats when i move around which is not fast lol i never used to sweat this much when i jogged 5 miles on my day off 2 yrs ago before i got ill? i get hot inside and feel weak all over i hate the heat yet i also hate the cold!!
However, my honest opinion is that these sweats are caused by menopause. I had night sweats perimenopausally (since my late 30's actually) and I still get them now on occasion, and there is nothing else wrong with me. I also sometimes still get hot flashes, and it is a good 8 years since my periods stopped. With some women, menopause symptoms do carry on for many years, but lessen as time goes by. Good luck!
