What does BSO stand for?

Ok, i feel like a big dork now. I was reading my paper that i have to take for my lab orders and it says lavh possible bso..Im calling the Dr. tomorrow to reschedule an appointment and im bringing my husband along to talk things over again with me. Guess i was in shock and after i heard the word hysterectomy i kinda forgot everything he said after that? He said that there was a chance that he may end up taking my left ovary...

What does BSO stand for?

Hi Amber,

BSO stands for Bilateral Salpingo oophorectomy. It involves the removal of both ovaries and both tubes.

(bilateral=both sides, salpingo =the fallopian tubes, oophore =the ovaries, ectomy = removal)

Removal of ovaries will throw you into surgical menopause which may result in hormonal unbalance. Sometimes only the left or right ovary & tube are removed, and this is referred to as RSO or LSO.

Hope this helps!

Best wishes and s, Deb

Please, never feel like a goof around here! We all have questions, otherwise we wouldn't need this site at all!
I had a TVH (total vag. hyst), with a BSO (both ovaries removed=TVH/BSO). You are more brave than me! I PM'd one of the hostesses here to find out what all that all meant!
We can be so silly when we are nervous.
8 days to go! May your surgery go well, and your healing be quick!
