I know this is kinda off topic but has anyone had a hysterectomy where they kept the ovaries in? I keep getting these hot flashes...is that normal? They said I wouldn't go into menopause but it sounds like it. (My husband also says the bed is wet from me sweating so much.) Any thoughts??

I have had a hysterectomy 24 years ago, but mine was a complete one.Everything was removed both overies, tubes and all. I take hormone pills everyday. I too get hot flashes at times, but not like you are talking about.It sounds to me like you made need some sort of medication. I had hot flashs like this before I was on medication. Maybe the overies have gone bad, this happens sometimes.It does sound to me like you are going through menopause too.
