How can you tell if you're postmenopausal after having a hysterectomy but no oophrectomy?

How can you tell if you're postmenopausal after having a hysterectomy but no oophrectomy?

No difference: If a woman was not menopausal before a hysterectomy with her ovaries left behind, she will not be menopausal after the hysterectomy. She may experience menopausal symptoms for about 6 - 8 weeks, after which the ovaries will have adjusted to releasing their hormones into just one instead of two veins draining hormones from the ovaries. ...Read more

I have swollen painful breasts after unilateral oophrectomy, is that normal?

I have swollen painful breasts after unilateral oophrectomy, is that normal?

Unrelated: Pain in breast tissue is usually the effect of excess hormone on the breast duct system. One would not expect that the removal of one ovary would increase the hormone output to effect changes in breast duct tissue to initiate symptoms related to fibrocystic disease. ...Read more

I had a unlilateral salpingo oophrectomy via lap. This was done a week ago can I have sex yet?

Just Be Careful: Although sex in and of itself will not hurt you, it is important that you heal from your incisions. You may want to give it another week. It's not worth the risk of hurting yourself while you're healing. ...Read more

I have a 3cm septated ovarian cyst. At what point/size should it be surgically removed. I have a hx of Dermoid Teratoma/partial oophrectomy.

I have a 3cm septated ovarian cyst. At what point/size should it be surgically removed. I have a hx of Dermoid Teratoma/partial oophrectomy.

It depends: Good evening,

It appears that you already follow with GYN, so they should be able to tell you when the cyst should be removed. Many times, the cyst is monitored every 6 months to a year for interval increase in size. If the size remains stable over time, there is no need for intervention. Good luck. ...Read more

Left oophrectomy 8yrs ago due to large dermoid. Now 3.8 cm dermoid and 3.1 cm complex cyst, 2.8 unspf cyst on rt. Can rt ovary be saved? Fertility?

Specialist: I would strongly advise first seeing a fertility specialist with expertise in robotic surgery. It is alsmost unheard of at a young age to remove the ovary for a cyst. Your fertility will be impaired no matter what and it is important to discuss options before surgery and ways to perform the surgery to moinimize removal of the eggs you have left. An evaluation of your eggs is important prior to sur ...Read more

I had a salpingo oophrectomy in jan 2012 removal of 1 ovary and tube I've got constant pain around my belly button and lots of water infections?

I had a salpingo oophrectomy in jan 2012 removal of 1 ovary and tube I've got constant pain around my belly button and lots of water infections?

Think hernia: If you had this done laparoscopically, and one of the incisions was at the belly button then it is possible you may have a hernia at the incision site. I can't understand what "water infection" refers to (urinary infection?). Please let your ob/gyn know about this. If they are not sure then go see a general surgeon for a thorough exam of your belly button. Your symptoms are not normal or typical. ...Read more
