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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

Rare if no ovaries: The term complete hysterectomy refers to removal of the uterus and cervix and not the ovaries. The term "complete hysterectomy" is often misused to imply that the ovaries were removed as well.

Yes, you are.: You are always at a risk of your cancer returning. The higher your stage, the higher the risk. The goal of chemotherapy is to kill any cells that were not removed by surgery.

Not really: If you had that, which is uncommon, they most likely left your ovaries in.
