Hysterectomy Remove Ovaries
For postmenopausal:: I would recommend oophorectomy in a postmenopausal patient, due to the (small, but possible) risk of a malignancy. While the most common type of dermoids are benign, they can be some that are malignant, and in a menopausal female i would recommend oophorectomy instead of cystectomy, to ensure that the tumor is removed entirely. For a premenopausal patient i would recommend cystectomy. ...Read more
Whole uterus only: A total (complete) hysterectomy is the removal of the whole uterus(body of the uterus as well as the cervix).A partial (or supracervical) hysterectomy removes part of the uterus and leaves the cervix in place.The removal of the tubes and ovaries is a separate procedure (salpingectomy and oophorectomy respectively). Removing everything is a total hysterectomy and a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. ...Read more
How can ovarian function be evaluated post hysterectomy uterus and cervix removed, ovaries retained?
Yes: Most of the time fibroids are managed by hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) for two main reasons. First, fibroids are often too numerous to remove individually without irreparable damage to the uterus. Secondly, most fibroids tend to grow back and removal of only the fibroids can be futile. The most definitive treatment is hysterectomy. Speak with your obgyn about the risks of surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: Strictly speaking the indications for removal are abnormal uterine bleeding, symptoms related to the bulky size of the fibroid, infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss. Many women choose hysterectomy when they are done with childbearing and desire a definitive end to their fibroid symptoms. If you do not have a lot of symptoms there is no necessity to remove fibroids. ...Read more

Possible pelvic mass had total hyst with removal of fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix and ovaries. Should i be worried?
Well yes, but...: If the ovaries are removed, then you'll no longer be producing much female sex hormone at all, and you'd then essentially enter menopause unless hormones are replaced in pill form. Daily hormone replacement pills keep levels very stable which would generally end the sorts of symptoms you get from abnormal hormone fluctuation in PCOS. Though it's far too aggressive of a treatment just for PCOS. ...Read more

No, not really: Adenomyosis is when the lining cells of the uterus are located just deep to the lining (but still within the uterus). It can be thought of as endometriosis of the uterus. Hysterectomy would remove this. Almost all fibroids are in the uterus also and would be removed with hysterectomy, although there are fibroids on rare occasions outside the uterus which could be missed/reoccur but very rare. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Nothing.: Unless you are having problems with the remaining ovary you do not need anything done. We recommend removal of an ovary if their is a mass, pain or some other problem.

What is a hysterectomy? I heard about it a while ago and apparently it removes your ovaries? Why would someone need this?
Not the ovaries: The uterus is the "hyster" and "ectomy" means to remove. A complete hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus, but most women think that complete means to take the ovaries as well. The ovary is the "oophor" and the tube is the "salpinx" so removing the tubes and ovaries with the uterus is a "hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

But there are larger and different cysts, like hemorrhagic, endometriosis that might be painful and needs to see your gyn for its management. ...Read more

In a total hysterectomy is it better to remove everything (including the ovaries) or to leave them?
Depends: For most postmenopausal women, leaving the ovaries provides few benefits and removing them substantially reduces the risk of ovarian cancer. In premenopausal women, it is important to weight the risks of a premature menopause such as heart disease, osteoporosis, and menopausal sxs, against the benefits of a reduced risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Each woman should carefully weigh the issues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had a hysterectomy, two years later i had left ovary removed due to cyst, at removal right ovary was but now right ovary has cyst?
Not a problem: Of course you don't want both ovaries removed at age 38 as that could harm your heart and bones. Cysts at age 38 are most commonly benign and doctor can perform a "cystectomy" rather than an "oophrectomy". Remove just the cyst if it causes pain or is of concern for the doctor, and leave the rest of the ovary. Unless strong family history ovarian cancer, then ovary should be spared at all cost. ...Read more

I am 42y did hysterectomy and removed ovaries now I have lower abd pain.Like before i also had decapeptyle .Is it possible that endometrioma is back?
Unlikely: I imagine that the surgery was for endometriosis and that you had similar pains before surgery. It is unlikely to have endometriosis recur after the ovaries are removed unless they are giving you estrogen replacement. Endometriosis can cause scarring and adhesions along with the surgery, and some of these pains may have to do with old scarring. An ultrasound may help, but may be other cause. ...Read more
