52, postmenopausal, effects of removing both ovaries?

I am 52 - 2/4 yrs post menopausal
Ultrasound done due to heavy bleeding for 2 wks
US showed a septated ovarian cyst
Dr. suggested bikini surgery with complete hyster.
due to cyst and uterine polyp.

Feedback on remg. both ovaries since I am already postmeno. Does it make any difference? Anyone in same boat?

Re: 52, postmenopausal, effects of removing both ovaries?

I just had both ovaries removed and I'm post menopausal. So far, more hot flashes but I was told that at this point my ovaries were atrophied and unlikely to have been making estrogen so there should not be much difference. Guess I'll see how I feel. Good luck with your surgery.

Hi Flowebud!
Glad you figured out how to post on here!!! And greyown used the right word...I said my right ovary was small but it was atrophied...I seem to have forgotten all my big words in the past few years!!

Re: 52, postmenopausal, effects of removing both ovaries?

I was also a few years post menopausal when I had a tah/bso. I was surprised by the menopausal symptoms that I had afterward ( bad night sweats, hot flashes, roller coaster emotions ). My dr prescribed hrt ( estrogen only ) that helped me greatly. I'm still taking a very small dosage now.

I think that you should discuss this with your dr and together you can decide what is best for you
