Your wife is in a condition called post-menopause and hysterectomy. 

Common side effects of hysterectomy include

  •     Hot flashes
  •     Bleeding, pain, infection
  •     Sleeplessness
  •     Joint pain
  •     Loss of sexual desire
  •     Hair loss
  •     Development of excess facial hair on the upper lip and chin region
  •     Vaginal dryness
  •     Mood swings, anxiety, depression
  •     Headaches, palpitations
  •     Weight gain

This causes the problems you mentioned and Estrogen was prescribed to cure the symptoms. However it has affected her adversely and she must get an Estradiol and Progesterone test done to know the status currently. 

Inspite of stopping the medicines this condition will not improve since this is a hormonal issue. She can also consult with an Endocrinologist for this problem and he will advice the best cure. 

Surely it is treatable and meanwhile if she is not calm at mind, she can take sessions to speak with a Psychologist as well. This will help her control the problem too and improve your relations at home.
