Just looked up the oil, don't think we can get it in our state.
Read some positive things about the oil, however.

I am curious about the oil mentioned, I had the same surgery as you will have. I was younger, took Premarin .625 tablets, one AM other PM, now use mainly the Premarin cream.
For hotflashes I do feel that Vit E that is NOT the synthetic helped, it costs maybe $2.00 more per bottle that the synthetic. You would look for:
d-Alpha Tocopherol ( not the dl-Alpha) I always get Nature Made brand- don't know if we can mention brands?
Best wishes with your surgery and hot flashes.
Several years ago my Urologist suggested a bit of Premarin cream to be used on the urethra and years prior, with UTI's and no tub bathing or hot tubs, and I have showered ONLY since. The one time I was in a hot tub I developed a UTI, we were on vacation, I was miserable.
Now with much more age it is necessary for the entrance of my vagina, skin quite thin and can tear in one area….GYN says Premarin cream is to be used internally and as Urologist suggested as well.
Even though my remaining ovary was removed years ago, I do get slight cramp-like pains, not severe however as when I had all of my parts, reminds me of " a light period type cramping". I cramped severely for years, gradually several female surgeries.
Al, just re-read your post, you have been doing this for 3 1/2 years…could FIL get "respite care" occasionally at a care center? YOU need a break Al from your routine. When my husband of 50 years was on hospice, I was told that his hospice group would pay for time ever so often if I needed it….it was offered, not needed or wanted ever, he was easy to care for. Could hospice be an option for you? Imagine your world is getting smaller isn't it.
Having a bout of what I called MAJOR INSOMNIA I fully understand what you are experiencing. Finally I gave in and went to the doctor, he said take 2 Benadryl — after years of going to him he should know if I have an appointment it is not for something trivial. I have taken one B for the intended use, but never 2, so I tried 2 and next night 2 more…might as well take tick-tacs,…. sleep NO! I explained to doctor that in the 70's I had bouts of this type of insomnia and how my doctor at that time treated my insomnia. Imagine that med is no longer on the market, it did not work for a couple of nights…. A few days later, a Friday, I phoned and spoke with his nurse, she got back with me and said a script was ready for me to pickup at the office, I told her I was to weary to drive, heavy traffic and a iffy left hand turn to make….told her she would have to mail the script and she did, rec's it on Tuesday, nearest grocery store has a good pharmacy and the girl that rang up the script said she had taken the med for years for sleep….it did nothing. Days later I drank a tea for sleep all day long,refilling the mug with hot water and ever so often adding a fresh tea bag, did get a bit of sleep that night….doing better now, imagine the script would work now, have not tried it. Doctors don't comprehend major insomnia, no way could I function well. WE CAN GET TO A STAGE WHERE NOTHING WILL WORK LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TO!
Have you considered a sleep study? it was suggested to me, did not do one.
