Previous scarring: Previous surgical scar tissue (adhesions) make this a more complicated question to answer because the subject ovary may be "stuck" to other tissues like bowel, pelvic sidewall or bladder. If you don't want to return to surgery after this operation you might give consideration to hysterectomy with ovarian removal. You will need a very competent surgeon to undertake this operation- interview wisely
