I am just wondering how many of you had night sweats after surgery and how long did they last? My surgery was the 17th and I have been home since the 22nd and I am still soaking the bed everynight with sweat. I have not taken perkaset (spelling) since last Saturday. Other than that - I am feeling pretty good although tire easily.

This is the first time I heard of this being a result of surgery? Did you have any before? Could it be from some medication or something else? I went through menopause and never had night sweats, had some mild ones when on Prednisone but wasn't expecting any after surgery? Will be interested in people's replies.
Hope they go away soon.

I remember one of my past GI's telling me night sweating was a part of crohns - and I have had night sweats in the past. But, right now it really bad. I am soaked every night. I am only 33 years old - female.

I remember that alright, It lasted about a week or two. I think it is because of the high dose of steroids that they give you right before surgery.
But yes I remember waking up and wondering if I just wet the bed.

Good to know but I don't remember them telling me that I would get steroids before surgery?
They did tell me to ask questions so will have to remember that one.

Same happened to me. It lasted about a week to 10 days. Like Wolfie, I blamed it on the steroids.

I used to put on Airconditioner, even when the temperature outside was 15 deg celcius. I used to sweat a lot for first month. Later on I would feel very cold, even though, in my lifetime, I never wore any woolens, but after surgery I have to use them.
