post hyst, now cysts...sos

Hi from a newbie! My hysterectomy was in 12 of 1999. I have my right ovary intact, for now. Just recently started having pain in abdominable area. Ended up in ER last night with severe pain to find out that I have cysts on my only remaining ovary. Starting to get a little worried about the whole thing. Can anyone help or shed light on the subject of one ovary left after the fact and how long does it actually hold up? Is it worth keeping? Help please. Thanks!

Hi Trixie

I'm sorry to hear you're having problems. I don't think there's any rule of thumb about what happens to ovaries after a hysterectomy. Sometimes they function fine and last forever (my mom had a hysterectomy at age 37 and she's 85 now and her ovaries are still intact) and some ovaries fail, others need to be removed. As for cysts, it depends on what kind they are and whether they continue or not. As for whether or not it is worth keeping your ovary, that depends on a lot as well. If it's functioning and healthy of course it's worth keeping. Unfortunately, it may be that only time will tell for you. Just gather what information you can about your own particular situation and then make an informed decision. One step at a time!
