Should be: Based on your cancer history, HRT should be safe but there can be other contraindications so you should discuss it with your doctor.

Yes: Before your ovaries were removed, they made hormones (hrt) so you should be fine using replacement after the surgery. That particular type of cancer should not be affected by replacement. A person with breast cancer, active blood clots, certain types of uterine cancer or undiagnosed vaginal bleeding should not use hrt.
