Thanks for that, Mandala! Now I can be grateful for only having them every hour! I can't have HRT till after my op in February. One of the many irritating things is, the longer this goes on, the more my family (menfolk) are inclined to think it no longer makes me exhausted. It's just there in the background, not new, not lethal, just a bit of an inconvenience when I go off on one.
