A 32-year-old member asked:

after a complete hysterectomy will polycystic ovarian syndrome go away?

Ovaries removed?: Only if the ovaries were removed at the time of hysterectomy. I don't want to assume too much here, 'complete hysterectomy' has no medical definition.

No: Pcos does not "go away" unless the ovaries are removed at the same time. However, after a hysterectomy, the periods will not be an issue and pcos symptoms may not ba a factor any longer.

Can be: While i wouldn't call it normal, leg lengthening is a potential result of total hip replacement and can be no big deal or a significant disability. Leg lengthening has become less common with newer implants and surgical techniques. Significant lengthening can be balanced with a heel lift in the other shoe.

It is low...: Have your doctor explain the results so you can understand what the plan will be. Most likely it is an anemia due to iron deficiency, but need to rule out genetic reasons like thalassemias. Treatment is via iron supplements or foods rich in iron like green leafy vegetables, meats, beans and iron enriched cereals. Egg yolks are also a good source.
