what happens to the ovaries?

I've been on youtube watching videos on the daVinici procedure. The process is amazing. I watched many videos trying to answer this question, but came up empty handed. I am hoping someone here might know the answer.
After the uterus and cervix is removed, What happens to the ovaies that are left behind? Are they left, just free-floating? Do they just mingle among the intestines?

Re: what happens to the ovaries?

I had someone ask me that too. I would be interested in knowing the answer myself. That's funny ~ mingle among the intestines!

Re: what happens to the ovaries?

They are still attached to their supports/ligaments but yes, they mingle among the intestines. One of mine is attached to the pelvic wall and the doctor left it there but my other one has migrated way over to my right side. The ultrasound tech had lots of fun trying to find it. I asked her where it was because I will need yearly ultrasounds due to familial ovarian cancer (had no idea that this was an issue at the time of my hyster) and I didn't enjoy the digging around the tech did to find it so hopefully, I can tell the tech where to look next year.
