Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. The night sweats can be due to several reasons. Firstly, your regular blood sugar monitoring should be done as hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) is one of the important causes of the same. Secondly, a low blood pressure can also produce the night sweats.

Hence, it should be ensured that your blood pressure remains normal. The low blood pressure can be due to bleeding from any site especially the surgical site. An ECG/Echo along with cardiac enzyme like Trop T/ CPK-MB should also be done to rule coronary artery disease as angina can also present with similar complaints of night sweats. Please do consult a physician for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
