Hot Flashes

Hi to all,

I have read that some people experience hot flashes as a symptom.  I am starting menapause and realize that causes them,  but I'm getting them EVERY DAY about 20+ times day.  It's starting to become disruptive too my life.  36 degrees last night and I had window open with a fan.  My husband is starting to get upset. I'm freezing him out. 

Any suggestions on how to cope till surgery?

Hi there, sorry you are dealing with the flashes.  Some people do get flashes but most of them happen at night, or more so at night.  I am wondering if you are really feeling more of the menopause. I can tell you, i am going through it also and one minute i need an a/c and the next i am freezing. I don't know exactly what the size of your tumor is or any details, but i am thinking maybe something at the vitamin shop can help deal with the flashes for the menopause.  Praying all goes well and you are feeling better real soon! Hugs!

Looking back I also had severe hot flashes at night. After my nephrectomy they subsided somewhat. But they're baaaaaaaack. I originally blamed hormones, and now? I definitely blame the hormones!

Hope you are feeling cool as a cucumber soon!

Hot Flashes,

Hubby got an extreme high temp every night until he had the nephrectomy. He found sitting outside in the breeze good for them... even in the rain a few times! Hope you feel better soon. Hugs Melissa

i to had hot flashes , more at night . Had my open radical nephrectomy at the end of November. Stage III I've had my three months check up in March . The nodule in my lung is still the same size . I'm still having hot flashes . But there just in the center of my body and more on the side where the incision was made . My arms and feet are always cold . I've had my hormones check . Has anyone else experienced this ?

I had hot flashs for 2 months from the day I was diagnosed until I start recovering.... Now it's gone 6 weeks after the surgery... I believe it's normal...

Thanks to all for the info.  I've noticed when I get them,  both my arms,  face,and upset chest get very red.  Looks like sun burn.  I need to get fan for my desk at work they get so bad!  I feel like it goes from 70 to 100 then down to FREEZING during the faze.

I started having hot flashes 1 1/2 months after a tumor was removed from my kidney. I have already been through menopause so I don't think that is it. I didn't have these the first month or so after surgery. I called the doctor still waiting to hear back. It's been 2 months and I can't wait till i feel normal again, I hope I get some answers. I also have cold feet and hands.

Look how many responses to hot flashes.  Right at this very minute I feel like I'm melting down.  SHEWWW!!!!  The fan is on the a/c is on and its horrible to go through this all day and night. LOL  I was on hormone patches until a month ago when I got blood clot in my groin from hip surgery a few weeks earlier.  THe first thing to go was the patches.  wow am i paying for it now.   Im 59 years old, went thru menopause many years ago or so i thought.  My husbacd sees me sweating like this and says what is wrong with you?  Are you sick?   Oh well just keep the cool air blowing.!!!!

I was having some terrible hot flashes before my diagnosis, never relized what was wrong I just thought it was after menopause flashes. Good thing I had a cat scan for another problem never thought I would here the word Cancer.

I didn't have hot flashes of any kind. The Good Ship Menopause sailed long ago, with an instant surgical version in 2008 due to endometrial/uterine cancer. I was still cranking out hormones, though, enough to get hormonally charged breast cancer the same year as the kidney cancer in 2018. I think I had a few sweaty nights in 2008 after surgery, but nothing since. If anything, I get cold flashes at night.
