Ovarian Pain over 1 year after SAH

Has anyone dealt with pain on one or both ovaries? I have been dealing with it for a month or two putting it off to see my ob/gyn. I saw her yesterday for my annual exam. I mentioned the pain to her. She scheduled an ultrasound for next week to rule out ovarian cysts or any abnormalities. She thinks the cause is scar tissue on my left ovary.

Any thoughts?

Ovarian Pain over 1 year after SAH

I had a TAH/LSO in 2002 and at 9 weeks post op had cysts on my remaining ovary. At that time I was put on bc pills to suppress ovulation and never had a recheck to see if the cysts went away or what. Fast forward to this Oct after having been on Lupron for 6 months and then bc pills again for 6 weeks. I had a lap for adhesion lysis and RSO and my ovary was grossly cystic ! My doc said I must have been dealing with estrogen dominance for quite some time.

Hopefully, this isn't the case for you, but it can happen. Make sure you get answers you are comfortable with. Good luck and let us know how things turn out!

Hi Ladies,

I've seen this subject on the boards more than once, so you may want to do a search to find other input.

It seems fairly common for ladies who kept their ovaries to experience later problems. I wonder if there's any research out there on the incidence of post-hysterctomy ovarian cysts? Hmmm... now you've got me wondering, since I kept my ovaries too. Definitely something to add to my six-month check-up question list.

Hi
I had cysts on my ovaries when I had my TAH. My dr. removed one and stitched up the ovary. I am 6 1/2 months post op and now experiencing some pain in the ovary area. I hope nothing bad is going on.In Sept. when I had my lapro. for possible adhesions the surgeon said my ovaries looked good, but that was 2 months ago. I know things can change.
Sometimes I wish I would have had them removed during my hyst. to save me from any possible complications down the road.
My sister had cysts which her dr. monitored for a few months. she was placed on BC and it seemed to shrink them.

Good luck sisters
Peggy

Wow! I will definitely look into that. I hope we get more response so I don't feel so alone.

Denise:

I'll cut a long story short and say that yes have had pain in my left ovary and for me it was scar tissue causing the problem. Scar tissue removed in Jan of this year via laparoscopy.

An ultrasound is a good idea to rule out cysts as the cause of the pain. I had one of those and my ovaries were normal and that helped us make the decision to do the lap.

Keep us posted!!!

I don't have cysts, and "maybe" I don't have scar tissue, but I think I do... but what I do have for sure is one ovary which "flopped" inside onto the vaginal cuff rather than to the "outside" and this causes a fair amount of pain on a regular basis.

I've helped things a bit with some exercises, but there is nothing to really fix it except (maybe) surgery - which I'm not prepared to undergo!!



I hope your problem is easy to fix.

Hi ladies,

After posting to this thread, I did a little net surfing. I found a site for the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists and posted a question there.

This is the response I got:

"One study found that the risk of needing subsequent surgery for an ovarian cyst was 4%. The other important fact is that the risk of ovarian cancer is know to be 50% lower after hysterectomy, for reasons that are not entirely clear."

From Dr. William Parker of that site.

Hmmmmmm...... 4%. That, like the incidence of mini-periods, sounds a little low based on the experiences reported from ladies on this site.

Well, I had my U/S this AM. So far nothing visible so it's looking like post-surgical adhesions. I will have to wait until the doctor calls back to find out for sure.

I just have to sit and wait.
