Never had at flashes pre-op. three mon post-op, OMG. They came with a vengeance! I understood there would be hormonal adjustments, but geesh!!!!! Doc attributed part to hormonal changes from significant weight loss & my age (47).

I tried to deal with them for a month with no relief. So I finally gave in & found an herbal supplement that I take daily. Within 10 days, hot flashes & night sweats subsided. Call it my miracle pill because after 10 days, they stopped completely. Thats not unless i miss 2 doses.

Oh my goodness YES! I think it is because of the hormones being released in the fat cells. I am no doctor by a long shot but I did read something about this. I am also 52.

I know this is an old thread but I'm hoping to resurrect it. Having serious, sleep depriving Hot Flashes. I'm 46, almost 47 and GYN checked levels. Levels have all dropped but I'm not done. Started taking Black Cohash. Having strange dreams (many about sex ????) and it gives me almost a hang over headache in morning. Anyone else experience that with Black Cohash? Would love to know.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
