Only 2 more days...Getting nervous!!

Surgery is almost here, I am scheduled for Mon a.m. At 7:30. I am getting pretty nervous, didn't sleep much last night. Right now I am a cleaning fool!! I guess that is from nervous energy and knowing I woun't be able to do much for a couple of weeks. It has been decided I remove both ovaries. I have severe pain on the right side but not the left and wondering if I should keep at least one. I'm kind of struggling with having both taken out and having to have HRT. I am 53 and went an entire year without a period before all H*** broke loose. If anyone has any last opinions about ovary removal good or bad I would greatly appreciate it. Good luck to all of you and I hope we all have quick, troublefree recoveries!!

Good luck to you with your surgery. I would be tempted to tell the doc if your other ovary looks healthy to keep it. As long as you have no family history that would indicate its better to take it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it I always say.

Re: Only 2 more days...Getting nervous!!

If you can keep one ovary, I think it would be helpful for you in the future. Ovaries continue to put out low levels of hormones after menopause and anything that your body makes is better than anything that can be prescribed over a counter in my opinion. Of course, if you have a history of ovarian cancer or other issues, this needs to be taken into account while making your decision. I hope this helps.

Re: Only 2 more days...Getting nervous!!

Hello just thought I'd share what my dr told me about the ovaries.

I.also wanted to keep only one since that side seemed to give me more trouble than the other. She told me that if I take just one that the other will just make up for the missing ovary & in time will act up just like the ovary giving me trouble.

In the end I wil be keeping both as my dr & I decided i'm too young to be on hrt

My Dr. and I decided to keep both of my ovaries as long as they look healthy. I have no family history of ovarian cancer so I would really like to keep them, not ready for HRT just yet! Good luck to you and all the ladies with your surgeries. Getting ready for 12/1!!

Thank you for your thoughts. I think the morning of I will ask her to keep 1 if it is healthy. Hoping for the best outcome!
