All kinds of questions

I am glad I was directed to the right forum Long story short. I had a TAH in July of last year and we kept ovaries because of my age 33 at the time and they have always been perfect. Well now since the end of March I have been hurting. It got really bad in April but I toughed it out not knowing what it was. I went to the ER in May where a CAT scan showed small left ovarian cyst. I had a follow up with my doctor and he ordered a ultrasound for me. Ultrasound was almost a week and a half ago and shows a pretty massive cyst (looks like it is draining) and my fallopian tube is very enlarged. I go to GYN on Thursday of this week to I guess discuss my options. I am about ready to say just take it out even though that would be another abdominal surgery with a 3-4 day hospital stay. I do not like birth control pills. They make me sick, I also have high blood pressure, family history of stroke, and twin sister has history of blood clots. Okay, question is can you get enough of the hormones needed on just one ovary? I honestly don't know which way he will go, but I don't want to have to battle with this until I hit menopause some almost 15 years away and then later having to have it taken out anyway. Can you all give me any info about hormones?

Re: All kinds of questions

Hi Amanda!

I'm sorry that you've been having problems and that another surgery may be necessary.

It is possible for one ovary to do the work of two so that you won't need to use hormone therapy but of course there are no guarantees. There are plenty of good hormone therapy options to use if you do find that you need something to supplement what one ovary is producing if you opt to have one ovary removed. Articles 8 - 13 in the Hormone Jungle Articles will give you basic information on the various types of estrogen.

Good luck at your appointment! Let us know how it goes, okay? If you do decide to schedule that surgery, you can use the Separate Surgeries message board both pre- and post-op for your information and support needs.
