Possible scarring: Sometimes scarring bands (adhesions) form after having surgery. These are often asymptomatic, but occasionally they manifest as pain later on. They can be difficult to confirm, but recurrent symptoms would prompt further investigation. I would begin with an exam and a sonogram to evaluate for other causes such as an ovarian cyst. If nothing is identified, and the pain persists a DX laparoscopy. ...Read more

Can a partial hysterectomy lead to ovarian failure?

Not likely: If you mean removing the uterus no probleably not. It is possible for some of the blood supply to the ovary to be interrupted but it is not very likely as the ovary has major blood vessels coming from two places. ...Read more

Can you get ovarian cancer after a hysterectomy?

Can you get ovarian cancer after a hysterectomy?

Yes: "hysterectomy " technically means removal of the uterus, not the ovaries and the uterus. A bso (bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy) means removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes. Even if the ovaries have been removed, there is a very small chance that ovarian cancer can develop from cells that line the abdominal cavity. This chance is much less than 1 in 100. ...Read more

If you have a total hysterectomy can you still get ovarian cancer?

If you have a total hysterectomy can you still get ovarian cancer?

Yes you can: Hysterectomy, is removal of the uterus: ovaries are separate glands lying next to the uterus. Often they are removed at the time of hysterectomy, but not always. Ovarian cancer can also arise from the epithelial lining of the peritoneum (sometimes called primary peritoneal carcinoma) which behaves just like ovarian cancer and is treated the same way as primary ovarian cancer. ...Read more

I've had ovarian cysts and painful bursts almost every month for years. Even more often since my partial hysterectomy February 2013. Help.

OCPs or surgery: You could take OCPs to suppress ovulation, as that's when these cysts usually start. The other option would be to have one or both ovaries removed, which can be done laparoscopically. However, if both ovaries are removed, you will need to take hormone replacement, especially at your age. ...Read more

I recently had a partial hysterectomy about 3 months ago and discovered last month that I have an ovarian cyst, does it need to be removed?

I recently had a partial hysterectomy about 3 months ago and discovered last month that I have an ovarian cyst, does it need to be removed?

No: Not unless it is causing bad symptoms or has features worrisome for cancer. Cancer is unlikely since your surgeon just looked at the ovary 3 mo ago. The cyst should be followed with periodic ultrasounds to make sure it resolves and does not develop worrisome features. ...Read more

Time to remove it: A painful ovarian cyst that persists fro more than 6 weeks is not likely to be normal. Every women who is ovulating form an ovarian cyst with every cycle and they always go away on their own - if they persist they are not normal and usually require surgery. ...Read more

At 27, I had ovarian cancer and then a hysterectomy. Is HRT safe for me? My cancer was malignant dysgermanoma.

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. ...Read more

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

Depends: At 39 years old, you probably have functioning ovaries. If they are removed you are (without hormonal replacement) plunged into menopause. A question would be, are you in pain, or are the ovaries just known to have asyptomatic cysts on them? Most physicians would remove symptomatic ovarian cysts if other means to shrink them didm't work. ...Read more
