@westlove718 Wow, you really just got your brand new kidney!! 😊 Exciting!
Yes, I have hot flashes all the time too. I live in warm South Florida, I am over a 60 years old woman, and I take the anti-rejection immune suppression drugs too. I think your body will continue to adjust to the new immune suppression drugs and some of your drugs like Valcyte will probably come off in a few months. Will you continue on Prednisone or will they be weaning you off that drug in a few months?
I always take a nice cold shower in the evening and chill down my bedroom before I go to sleep. I also keep the air conditioning running on high during the day and a have a cold drink of water often. Have you portaled your transplant nurse to get her thoughts on your hot flashes? It sounds to me like you are having the perfect storm of early menopause and your new drugs (and the weather is getting warmer too!) I think your body will ultimately adjust to all of this and all will be well, but it's always a good idea to just double check any questions with transplant.
