HOT FLASH HELL!!!

HOT FLASH HELL!!!

I was super excited to find out that chemo would put me directly into menopause but these hot flashes are out of controlšŸ˜³.... Any tips or product suggestions? I am 75% done with chemo so I am dealing with the cumulative effects of that and now these damn hot flashes. Thank god my head is bald or I would be in big troublešŸ˜‚

Well I already went thru menopause and basically just rode the wave so to speak. I'm not great for advice on this but I did feel them coming and I just kinda let it happen. I would never take any supplements as you know while on chemo without approval from a doc. I know what they are like sorry if your doing that on top of everything else tho...

I have a lot of Hot Flashes as well and they are miserable. The PA said they could put me on a anti depressant and I elected to not take it. I have yet to find anything that works. If you find a good remedy, please let me know. Speaking of, I have one coming on NOW!! LOL

Kathe, I think the day of treatment you have to get steroids to make sure you don't have an allergic reaction to your chemo meds but after that if you don't have a reaction there is no reason to take them. I am glad I asked my oncologist and I did feel better for this treatment without them...

Yup.. So I despise the steroids so I asked my oncologist if I could forego the steroids for the 3 days following treatment and he said YES!!! Way, way better this time...
