Ovary attached to bowel....1-year Post Hysterectomy

Hi there...I joined just over one year ago. This site has been very helpful. Had cyst removal and untwisting of right ovary 3/06 and then started again with abdominal pain Spring of 07. Finally in 12/07 had hysterectomy. Removed uterus and cervix. Had endo inside of uterus. During surgery, bladder was torn...may have been caused by scar tissue attached. Since surgery, have had numerous bowel issues. I have been told IBS, not enough fiber, trauma to bowels from surgery...etc. But now, I have had 2 transvag ultasounds in the last week and they found cysts that are filled with blood and leaking and today the ovary looked attached to my bowel. Scared for surgery, scared to remove ovaries, just scared in general. I am 37 and I just don't want the pain anymore. Any advice? I would really appreciate anything you could share with me. I have been trying to see the pro's and con's of the removal of my ovaries.
Thank you!

I am sorry you are still going through so much

Typically if your ovaries are healthy then you would really want to try to keep them.

However, if they arent, it's time to consider other options. Has your doctor mentioned going in via laproscopy and detaching the ovary from the bowel? That's a possibility. But then you run the risk of it reattaching. Also, for the cysts, I know the docs will prescribe birth control pills to help shrink them. But, did your doctor say if they thought the cysts might be endometrioma's? I had those and ended up having both ovaries removed. Last, are you seeing an endometriosis specialist? I would recommend finding one and getting a second opionion if it were me.

I hope you find the answers you are looking for. Good luck with your decision.

Hi there!
Thanks for responding. I am still waiting for the call from the doctor for her decision. I was told they they can't tell if it's endometreosis from the ultrasound. And I also can't take birth control due to something they found on my liver caused from many years of being on birth control. She is not a specialist, which at this point I am concerned with. So, I am sitting here doing as much research as I can on this. I have not had a good year since 2005. I am exhuasted by all of this.
Thanks again and I hope all is well with you.

The only way to diagnose endometriosis is via laparoscopy. You doc may want to go in for a peek to see what all you are dealing with. But again, see if you can find an endo specialist. Alot of times they are disguised as reproductive endocrinologists.

You'll probably find from your research that a hyster is not a cure for the endo either. That's why it is so important to work with someone that is skilled in the disease.
