Ovary Removal And Thyroid Disease
Accidental?: Not sure how one would have an accidental ovarian removal. If one ovary is removed then there should be no changes. If both ovaries are removed then one expects menopause to start almost immediately.
You can have problems with they thyroid making too much or too little thyroid hormone. You can also have problems with it being too large (goiter) of having nodules or cysts in it. There are also occasional thyroid cancers. Most thyroid problems can be easily diagnosed and treated ...Read more
No: Mother nature gave females a"spare" in this case as the remaining ovary will ovulate and produce all the necessary hormones needed.
Depends on the pt: Not sure why an ovary would be 'accidentally' removed.... For a young woman who retains her other ovary, the symptoms would be minimal. She would have diminished ovarian reserve as she ages relative to if she were to have two ovaries. For a 53 year old woman (if this is regarding yourself) then there should be no issues at all, since the ovary isn't doing much anymore anyway
Depends on surgery: This is a question you will need to ask your surgeon as it depends on the type of surgery and surgical techniques used in your unique situation. By 4-6 weeks it should be fine but if a minimally invasive technique was used your surgeon may clear you sooner.
Yes: After pelvic surgery, many times pain can persist for a few days/weeks and can radiate to the back. If it does not improve see your doctor that did the surgery to make sure you don't have any complications from the surgery.
Ovary/uterus: The mentrual cycle is a shedding of the uterine lining and is hormonally induced. Have your GYN check your female hormone levels and thyroid function.
Tlh w/ ovary removal yesterday. When I try to urinate I can't, even if I bear down to do so and have the urge to urinate. Is this normal?
Urine retention: Go to er for a catheter as soon as possible.
I am having uterine/pelvic pain 2 months after d&c and right ovary removal. Is this normal? What should I do?
See your doctor: Recovery is usually complete by 2 months and you would be expected to be pain-free. If not, you should be evaluated for possible post op complications, such as infection, bowel injuries, or adhesions. If you were having the same pain pre-op, then consider persistent endometriosis, adenomyosis, or pelvic adhesions.See 1 more doctor answer
Growths: Ovarian cysts, growths and cancer are major reasons for ovarian removal. Sometimes it is important to take out the ovary intact, so the entire ovary is removed. With pelvic inflammatory disease or back scar tissue an ovary may also be removed. Can be done with an open method, laparoscopically or with the robot, ovaries are also removed with genetic cancer susceptibility.
Varies: It depends if it's done laparoscopically or via open technique, and how intense the adhesiolysis is. But, as a general rule, you should be back to full activity in about 2-3 weeks after laparoscopic procedure, and about 4-6 weeks after open procedure. Your surgeon will have his/her own recommendations, which I strongly suggest you follow. Good luck.
Robotic surgery: Same as any laparoscopic comparable procedure 1 to2 weeks.
Its been 1 year since hysterectomy with ovary removal, and HRT is not working, I feel old, and unlike me?
Hormone evaluation: See a gyn specialist in menopause issues, surgical menopause occurs after removal of ovaries in a reproductive age woman. It can be very abrupt and difficult to manage. Proper evaluation and hormone treatment should be able to help you get back on track. Sometimes patients need additional types of therapy such as testosterone. Other issues like thyroid and depression should be addressed.
