Ovarian cyst after hysterectomy in May!!

Okay - I recently had a CT scan due to some digestive troubles that have persisted since having my hysterectomy in May (uterus only, kept ovaries). My regular doc called last night and said everything looked okay in the CT scan but said that we would have to have an ultrasound scheduled because there is something on my ovaries - maybe a cyst but wont know until the ultrasound.

So, I realize that since the ovaries are still there that you can still get cysts but just how darned common is this after having the hysterectomy?

The ovaries were left in the first place because they were HEALTHY at least they were during surgery in mid May AND because I need to keep them because I can never take hormones of any kinds due to having history of blood clotting problems. I am young (36) so there was no reason to NOT leave the ovaries.

Wondering if anyone else out there has had this so soon after a hysterectomy. I may be putting the horse before the cart but based on the pain and discomfort I thought was digestive related I am starting to think that its the darned ovaries.... and not really thrilled to the thought of another surgery!!

Ovarian cyst after hysterectomy in May!!

Is the pain below your belly button and a little to one side and when it hurts, is the pain real sharp and kind of ripples outward?

I'm kind of going through the same thing and wondering what the heck is up

cysts only 4 weeks after hyst

I too, have developed cysts on one of my ovaries, but mine have developed in the past 4 weeks. I had my TAH on 8/18/05, and did fine for the first week post op, but I have been having increased pain since then. To the point of having to be put back on percocet. My Dr. did a CT to find the cysts, and said that if the pain doesn't subside, then he wants to take the right ovary. I'm going to ask him his opinion on keeping the other. I don't want to lose it, but I don't want to keep developing problems. I had the hyst so I could feel better, which I have yet to do.

Ovarian cyst after hysterectomy in May!!

I had my TAH 3/15/04 (3 days before my 35th b'day)from which point my ovaries started 'misbehaving' as one Dr. put it.

I had the right one removed due to cysts in 10/04.
Then the left in 06/05.

Never had a problem before
