In brief: TAH/BSO

Hot flashes are usually worst during the time immediately following surgical removal of ovaries.
Traditionally estrogen replacement after tah/bso, sometimes in high doses for a short time, is very helpful. My best suggestion is talk with your surgeon about recommendations to get you help.

In brief: Estrogen

Stop all caffiene- reduction won't be enough.
Increase exercise, try melatonin.

Melatonin is also associated with depression- might not be a good idea to use if your have depression history.

In brief: Sleep issues

Dr beard & dr. Honore already provided excellent info.
I would just like to go over some sleep hygiene basics with you. Retire & rise same time each day. Keep bedroom dark & cool & use only for sex & sleep. Turn off tv. No naps. Exercise regularly but not in late evening. No caffeine for 6 hrs & no alcohol or tobacco w/i 2 hrs of sleep. Keep dinner moderate sized & finish at least 2 to 3 hrs >.
