In brief: Surgery

Ovarian torsion is a surgical emergency.
The stem the ovary hangs on gets twisted cutting blood supply and outflow to the ovary. If not resolved surgically, the ovary may end up dying from gangrene. You don't wanna go that route! if you know one in this situation, drive her to er.
