I had a partial and have been getting pretty frequent hot flashes since surgery. The begin in my face & radiate to my entire body. I did not get them prior to surgery. Could a lobectomy push a person into menopause or could the hot flashes be a result of my thyroid hormones being out of wack? I had the left side removed 5 weeks ago. My follow up isn’t for 2 more weeks. Besides being really tired, that is the only symptom I have really noticed. It is debilitating at times. What can I do to minimize them?
