Would it be helpful to see an endocrinologist after completion of chemo for ovarian cancer? I have been having severe hot flashes, weight gain, severely dry, cracked feet, vision problems, lack of energy, mood swings...

Absolutely. Not only that you may need hormonal replacement, but some chemo agents may also affect other organs, so it is best to check your thyroid levels. Having said that, please do remember that chemotherapy itself has a toll on the body and can manifest with your symptoms, but at least checking thyroid is warranted.
