I had itching right after surgery but that was because they gave me something I was allergic to. You want o be sure you are not having a reaction to anythin you are on first. Try some benadryl, its better known as anti itch pill! It also comes in cream. :)
Itching is definitely a hormonal situation where menopause is concerned.
I have a ton of information on hormones on my profile. Click on my Blue name. Consider editing a profile, too...it is most helpful.
I just posted on skin problems related to menopause/hysterectomy to another poster.
