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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
