Hi there.

Well, I'm not that young, but I am about 6 months behind you and I had a full. No ovaries or anything else for that matter. I started my HRT before I left the hospital. I still have my moments, but each years get a little better to deal with. I certainly can not go w/o for any length of time. It is a BIG adjustment. I won't lie. I think as time goes on, it gets a little better.The embarrassing moments is when sitting in a meeting and all of a sudden you have water running down your face or you break out in a sweat. How embarrassing is that? I have decided not to make a big deal out of it. I call it a "personal summer" and people just laugh and move on.
If you find that your HRT isn't working for you, don't hesitate to speak to your doctor and tell him what you are feeling so he can make the necessary adjustments needed for you to live a productive; enjoyable life. It is truly a life changing experience. Hang in there. It will be ok. We are here for you and praying at the same time.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Hi RJ4CD,

I just wanted to chime in and let you know that you are not alone with having your ovaries removed at a young age. I had my hyst when I am 29 and left my ovaries as well. The end of jan this year I started having severe pain to the extent that they thought my appendix had ruptured after many tests and playing the wait and see game they found out that I had cysts on my ovaries and one of them had ruptured. I was getting no better and still in alot of pain so they decided to do a scope to check things out once they were in there they found that my ovary was twisted and was mush so they removed the left ovary and repaired large amounts of scar tissue. I thought that this was the end of my problems. I felt great for about a week and then started having severe pain again on the other side, again tests, wait and see and still was not getting any better they went in again not even a month later through the same ab incision from the previous surgery and found out that the right ovary had torsioned as well. So I am 32 and now have no ovaries, I am of course on ERT now because the pros outweighed the cons in my case and I am now 5 weeks post op from the second surgery, I am having a H*** of a time right now and have been since 10 days post op when they removed the staples my incision blew open I mean completely open, I am now hooked up to a wound vac and the incision is starting to finally close after 4 weeks of having the doctor scrape it with a scalpel to get out fibrious tissue and to keep the area clean. As well I am on my second round of antibiotics to keep down infection... The whole reason behind this reply is to let you know that you are not alone at your young age. Hormonally i have been fine so far I am having an increase of hotflashes but other than that I am good to go. The obgyn wanted to increase my estrogen this week to try to eliminate the amount of hotflashes I have been having but I opted just to wait and see if they wouldn't level out....

Good luck with your surgery I hope that you have a nice easy recovery!!!

Hi there! You are definitely not alone. I had my Hysterectomy w/ Right ovary removal at age 25. Next week, on Monday, I'm having my left ovary removed. I'm now 31. I am very nervous as well. Sounds like we are going through the same kind of thing right at the same time.

You mentioned bowel prep. What are they having you do for prep, if you don't mind me asking? I just purchased my stuff today, for Sunday, which is bowel prep day.
