It could be a reaction to the anesthesia.  How old are you?  Soon after my TT and RAI I found out I was in menopause at age 46.

I am 51 and have do the menopause thing. The office just call and said he would talk about it when I go see him. It is like over 100 here and I have my air down to 69 my light bill is going to be high. I am the one that is frozen here at night. So this is new to be hot. Thanks for your post.

If you're having "power surges", ask you doctor for Effexor, which is technically an anti-depressant that for some unknown reason takes care of the power surges.
