I have definitely entered menopause, or as others have said chemopause.
So for a while I’ve noticed I’ve been feeling hot and having troubles maintaining my temperature. Normally I need a blanket, heated blanket (to warm the bed before getting in) and comforter to sleep during the winter, but recently I haven’t turned on the heated blanket. In fact, I usually end up kicking off the sheets. But it been fairly constant and not feeling like a flash. However, last night was the worst so far, in fact, my face has been flushed since last night. And for the first time more of my body got involved. And this is likely to last as I plan to have my ovaries removed as soon as possible.
