The web site keeps kicking me out. Anyone else having that problem?

I was wondering about hot flashes too, I have been getting them since my surgery in Feb, and I think the chemo makes them worse. Do they eventually go away? My dr doesnt want me to take any hormones for them, but it would be nice at least to know they dont last forever.

hot flashes - I really don't have them too bad. I had them more after surgery a\nd during chemo (I finished chemo in Jne ) ab now I probably get them maybe 5 a week if that. I will go days without 1 and then may have two in a day and then go days again.... I don't take anything that would help prevent them

Chemo does contribute to hot flashes, especially night sweats, but you may also be experiencing side effects of surgical menopause. These symptoms vary from patient to patient. I've had success controlling them with Chinese herbs and accupuncture. Accupuncture also helps with the side effects of chemo.
