Ovarian pain after hysterectomy

I had my hysterectomy in may and my ovaries are constantly bothering me. I recently had a CT Scan done and they found a cyst on my right kidney and my right ovary. My OBGYN put me back on orilissa a few months after my hysterectomy so I am not sure what to do at this point.

Re: Ovarian pain after hysterectomy

I’m sorry to hear you are still struggling with pain and cysts. I don’t have experience with this, but a everal sisters have continued to battle with them after hysterectomy. I know that probably doesn’t make you feel better, but you aren’t alone. The orilissa is for endometriosis, right? Since ovarian cysts are a separate issue, I’m not sure how that relates to your cysts which can commonly form after ovulation. I can only imagine your frustration. Please reach out to your doctor. If you don’t feel you are being ‘heard’ please consider getting a second opinion.
Keep us posted.

Re: Ovarian pain after hysterectomy

Functional cysts form monthly as a part of our cycle, and most often once the egg is released, that's the end of the cyst. Sometimes the functional cyst fails to open, or it closes back up, either of which can cause the kind of ovarian cysts which bother us.

If you've not been back to your OBGYN, make an appointment to discuss what's going on, and make sure he or she can access your CT scan. Endo can come back after a hysterectomy if not all the lesions were excised. Is your OBGYN an endo specialist?

Ovarian pain after hysterectomy

My obgyn said that endometriosis can come back as long as I have my ovaries. He got it all when I had my hysterectomy in may but I also had a lot of adhesions.

Re: Ovarian pain after hysterectomy

I was able to keep one ovary. As it’s always done, it’s produced a few wonky, abnormally large cysts a few times since my hysterectomy. I met with my GYN and we decided to take a wait and see approach. I had an ultrasound to try to measure the size, but my ovary doesn’t like ultrasounds and didn’t make an appearance (it never has, and it took them an hour to find it when they were performing my surgery. He’s shy.) So my wait and see was done by my own measurements of pain. I opted not to take any medications - I had been on Lupron and Orilissa enough through the years. I used a heating pad, icy hot patches and Aleve to help with the pain. They have all resolved on their own.

Best wishes to you. You get to decide what you want done and how to proceed. I’d like to keep my little lone ovary and I’m not willing to go back on hormones, so I do what is right for me.

Re: Ovarian pain after hysterectomy

Adhesions can cause problems, but I wouldn't expect serious ones within a few months after hysterectomy, for it takes time for adhesions to strengthen to the point they hinder movement.

If your OBGYN isn't addressing your concerns, it may be time to get a second opinion.
