Night sweats

I'm 33 and 9 weeks ago I was diagnosed with stage 2 cervical cancer. I had a simple hysterectomy 10 days ago as part of the shape trial, the op seems to of been successful but I will get my full results in another few days. Side I left the hospital a week ago I've been experiencing terrible night sweats that leave me and my bed soaking wet. I still have my ovaries so is this normal? Please can anyone she'd any light on why I'm experiencing this? I read online it could be a sign of lymphoma and I've had my nodes removed so could that be the cause? 

I'd appreciate any feed back possible. Thanks in advance

That really does sound typically menopausal, it could still be that. I think it highly unlikely to be lymphoma. I wonder if you mean lymphodoema rather than lymphoma?. If it's lymphodoema, then you would have noticeable swelling in your pelvic area and legs. I think you should go to the GP and have your hormone levels checked. If you have had a hysterectomy you would only need oestrogen as HRT which is very easy to manage and you will feel loads better.

I agree with above, I was told that while they could leave my ovaries in to try and prevent menopause there was a high possibility they would fail and it would be unsuccessful. Do you mean lymphodema? That is when once the nodes have been removed you get a lot of fluid retention so i wouldn’t see that causing night sweats, lymphoma is a totally different type of cancer xx
