Yes,: Yes, if you have had an ovarian cyst in the past, then you may be at risk for having another. Ovarian cysts may not produce symptoms, and you may not even know if you have one unless it is detected during a pelvic exam. Since you are having an irregular menstrual cycle, it is prudent to see your doctor, especially if you suspect an ovarian cyst. Other signs can include bloating, abdominal or pelvic cramping, painful period, nausea/vomiting and difficulty urinating.
Long-term effects after unilateral salpingo oophorectomy? Removal b/c of lg cyst, borderline tumor. Experiencing very sweaty palms/feet 2 mos post-op.

Discuss with surgeon: If done through an abdominal incision, salpingo-oophorectomy is major surgery that requires 3-6 weeks for full recovery. If performed laparoscopically, the recovery time can be much shorter. There may be some discomfort around the incision for the first few days, but most women are walking around by the third day. Within a month or so, patients can resume activities such as driving, exercising..
1 week: After a minimally invasive so (robotic or laparoscopic), you will be groggy, and feel the worst incisional and pelvic discomfort for the first 24 hours. Motivated women may return to work after 2 to 3 days. You will continue to be achy, possibly bloated, and aware of the incisions with movements for about a week. Avoid heavy lifting and high impact activities for 2 weeks.See 1 more doctor answer
6 weeks: It generally takes 6 weeks for healing to be complete.
Progesterone: By removing one ovary, your progesterone production was greatly reduced. This allows your remaining estrogen production to build up the lining of your uterus thicker and also does not counter estrogen's tendency to cause clots. By supplementing your progesterone on days 13-27b of your cycle his should resolve. Contact your nearest comppounding pharmacy to find a doctor that can help you.
3 to 7 days: Many women can have the procedure done on a friday and be able to return to work and light activities on monday though there will still be some soreness and fatigue for a week. The discomfort can generally be relieved with nsaids. You should avoid heavy lifting, abdominal exercises, and intercourse for 2 weeks.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: This depends on your diagnosis. Dysfunctional bleeding associated with abnormal cells found on a D&C would be reasonable as most gynecologic cancers can be cured if treated early. Removal for chronic pelvic pain is more difficult to assess. If medical therapies have failed some women may consider this option. Get a second opinion.
Depends: Speak with your doctor about the risks and benefits of removing your ovaries. There are a lot of factors involved including your age, the health of your ovaries and the reason you are having surgery. The hormones they produce are helpful in preventing osteoporosis as well as regulating menopause. Make sure that you have all the information before you decide. Good luck!
Does it hurt?: It would be awful if you were awake for this operation. Luckily you go to sleep. Usually pain is very limited after the surgery, but this also depends on why your ovaries are being removed. Studies now suggest that unless there is good reason, leaving the ovaries in place may optimize your health unless there is medical necessity to remove both the tubes and the ovaries.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Depends on how it's done. Done laparoscopically (through small incisions) in your abdomen, recovery will be easier. If you're premenopausal (still getting a period), ovarian removal will put you into immediate menopause, likely causing common symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, emotional lability, vaginal dryness, etc. You'll want to talk with your obgyn about how to manage this.See 1 more doctor answer
Several: If the ovaries are both removed from a woman who has not yet gone through menopause, the procedure will make her immediately menopausal and infertile. Complications of the surgical procedure include pain, infection, hemorrhage, injury to internal organs, blood clots in the veins of the legs, and injury to nerves.
Depends: If this is done laparoscopically you should have very few issues postoperatively. Pain at the incision sites can last from less than a week to more than 2 weeks depending on lap vs. Open operation. Bleeding and infection are low risk unless this is being done for tuboovarian abscess. A lower abdominal incision can have a chance of hernia development.
Tube and ovary out: Removing the fallopian tube and ovary. Depending on the situation, this may be done with an abdominal incision, a laparoscope, or with the davinci robot.
Pain medication: Other than the pain medication your doctor would have given you after surgery there is no specific medications needed.
