Black Cohosh & Surgery

Hi Everyone,

I'm having a major back surgery on June 29th. I take a soy plus black Cohosh every day for hot flashes. Is this something I should stop before the surgery?

Re: Black Cohosh & Surgery

Hi Precious55,
While I used to take black cohosh and no longer do, my suggestion is that you definitely need to ask your doctor &/or surgeon this question. I had major surgery almost 2 years ago, and they kept me on everything I was already taking (even my vitamins). But this is definitely a question for your doctor's in my opinion. Good luck to you, and hope your surgery goes flawless! ~Karen

Thank you Karen. I'll ask when I go in for my pre-op on Tuesday. I think the hot flashes are from the Evista I take.

Good luck with your upcoming surgery, Precious.
I agree, ask your doctor.
I just started black cohosh with soy about three weeks ago for severe hot flashes and night sweats, and it's amazing the amount of relief I'm getting!!
