Have you had the heat and sweating ever since the hysterectomy?
Do you take any medications?
Do you have other health problems? Thank you.
Estrogen is the best treatment we have for heat and sweating brought on by low estrogen/menopause. I would recommend that you talk to your doctor about trying low dose estrogen. After a hysterectomy, there are usually few if any side effects, and you will most likely be much more comfortable and have much less (or none) sweating. Best wishes.
I think that the risk will be worthwhile. Please be sure to get plenty of exercise, as that will reduce your risk of another TIA or stroke.
Estrogen is more risky the longer after menopause it's started, but starting it 6 years after menopause (loss of estrogen) is not very risky. You'll probably get some differences of opinion depending on who you talk to.
