In brief: Loss of ovaries
Once the ovaries are removed female hormone production stops.
This tiggers hot flashed and other symptoms of menopause. The duration of these symptoms if going to vary from person to person and there is no real "normal" lenght of time. Discuss with your doc whether or not you are a candidate for hormone replacement therapy.
