I have been experiencing shooting vaginal pains for three days. I'm 64, radical hysterectomy in 1983, one ovary saved. Could this be an ovarian cyst?

Broad differential. The differential diagnosis is broad. The cause of your pain could indeed be ovarian in etiology. However, it is not uncommon for other disease processes (such as kidney stones) to refer to groin area as well. More history, exam, and possible imaging studies may be needed to give you a good answer. Hope this helps!

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

Depends. At 39 years old, you probably have functioning ovaries. If they are removed you are (without hormonal replacement) plunged into menopause. A question would be, are you in pain, or are the ovaries just known to have asyptomatic cysts on them? Most physicians would remove symptomatic ovarian cysts if other means to shrink them didm't work. Read more...
Possibly. Since you're in your reproductive years, you may form a cyst persisting from a recent ovulation that will then resolve on its own. An ultrasound should be performed in 6-8 weeks. If the cyst does not resolve then surgery, usually minimally invasive laparoscopic is necessary to remove the cyst and/or involved ovary. The tissue will be sent to pathology to determine if cancerous (unlikely) or not. Read more...

Depends. You still may produce eggs (follicular cysts) and ovulate, which may cause pain. This would be different than a cystic tumor. Also, if you have endometriosis, hysterectomy won't end all of the pain. Read more...

If an ovarian cyst twists can they save your ovary? I've been having bad pain, bloating & vaginal cramps.

YES, very often. "Twisting" can be partial or complete; intermittent or persistent. If surgery by laparoscopy or laparotomy has to be performed, there is a very good chance that your ovary can be saved. The recommendation now is not to remove the ovary even if it does not look very "viable"; it will frequently retain good ovarian tissue and remain functional. Read more...
