Had fairly major abdominal op Dec 1st. Hysterectomy, cystocoele and rectocoele repair, tubes removed, colposuspension, but ovaries left in. Recovery uneventful and as expected (I could moan and groan and whine but I'll spare you, of course it's a total bitch for the first few weeks but really nothing out of the ordinary as far as I can tell.)
Most annoyingly, I'm having night sweats. I normally get them a few days before my period starts as my progesterone levels tend to plummet rather than gently decrease, but this has been every night since 4th night post-op. (12th day post-op today.) I Googled once and then stepped away from Dr. Google as reading too much can be rather frightening, but it appears to be not unusual after major ops.
What I want to know is, how fecking long is this going to last? It's horrible! Two or three soaked night shirts a night, and I have to painfully roll from wet side of bed to dry side and then back again. Grrrrrrrrr!!!!!
Well I have had 2 c sections and had awful night sweats after both. Similar to you, bed sheets soaking. Think they lasted about 4-5 weeks in total on both occasions. Really bizzare!! Hope recovery goes well x
