I am 52. I had a hysterectomy 25 years ago. Just the last 3 months or so I have been sweating

profusely. all time day and night but night seems to be worse. One time I was so went I wondered if I peed the bed.


Can women go through "the change" even if they have already had all the parts removed?

I literally have to change from t-shirts to long sleeves 4-6 times a day

at night I sleep in nothing

2. Were your ovaries removed too, or just hysterectomy/uterus?

If you've still got your ovaries, sounds like menopause.

3. At first just uteris and cervix then a year to the day had to have the ovaries out

so have had nothing for 25 years.

I took premarin for the first 3 years and gained 10 lbs a year each year and I was smoking and worried about the medical issues with that so weaned myself off. for 24+ years never had anything problems .

it is weird.

So is sweating profusely part of it?

4. Some people call them trips to the tropics. I call them a pain in the butt.

5. Generally, once the ovaries are removed

you get instant menopause (and then don't go through menopause at the typical time).

My mom had a hysterectomy, but kept her ovaries. For years she could track when she would have had periods - and went through they typical menopause.

If you had them both out, I'd check with a doctor. It does sound like menopause (personal mini tropical vacation - all the time). But since you don't have the body parts that would cause it (and other chronic health problems), if I were in your shoes I'd want it checked out.

7. Excellent suggestion.

I had a hysterectomy at 41, but they left one ovary. I had normal menopause symptoms. Then, a few years later I started experiencing sweating and irregular heartbeats. They tested for thyroid problems. It was a good thing they did. I have Grave's Disease.

8. I hope you

had a workable outcome that was comfortable for you. I'm not that familiar with thyroid disease, but it's on my radar when I hear of mysterious symptoms like these.

9. Yes.

I had my thyroid destroyed with radioactivity. I fought that for about a year, but eventually it became clear that I needed to do that.

I take Armour thyroid as a replacement for a functioning thyroid. My endocrinologist tried to give me synthroid. I hated it.

Interesting fact: Medicare does not recognize the existence of Armour. Medicare D will not pay for anything. I pay for it myself.

I do have to be careful about not putting on weight. I was doing well with that until about a year ago. I now need to figure out something new to keep my weight down. I have put on about twenty pounds over the last year.

11. We can call ourselves

Rubens women ( ! ) -- not to make too much light of it, because I need to seriously watch my weight as well. I'm trying to be as healthy as possible, with mixed results.

10. My deepest sympathies

I suffered through it for 10 years. Finally got hormone replacement patch. You might consider it.
