Hello, i cant find the answer anywhere on-line. I had a hysterectomy at age 37 and bi-lateral ooferectomy the following year. I was told i would go through medically induced menopause. I never experienced anything, until last summer 9yrs AFTER my surgery. How is this possible? I am now having severe hot flashes that leave me burning up and sweating profusely sometimes all day long without letting up. I go days or wks without this but is comes back eventually. My joints ache so bad, headaches, mood swings that also come and go. Please help me understand what is happening to me? Why is this happening now, yrs after my surgery? Thank-you

Hi Miscortes
Yes i have spoke to my Dr. about this, but he never really gave me any answers as to why. Maybe I will call the Specialist who performed my surguries in another city, that i was referred to.
Thanks anyways :)

Hi Stircrazy,
Welcome to EmpowHer and thank you for your question. First and foremost, there is help for menopausal symptoms which you can find more information on our site here http://www.empowher.com/condition/menopause.

Why this has occurred 9 years after your surgery? This unfortunately remains a mystery even after I have researched it myself. Have you spoken to your doctor about this? Did he/she offer any suggestions?
