I have a question!

Since my op it would appear that my remaining ovary is not working. I know it's early days (7 weeks), but if it decides never to work again does that mean I would have to have it removed at some point? I'm reading about other ladies having theirs removed at a later date and just wondered - is it a risk to leave it in if its not working?

I have a question!

Hi ((((Chris)))))

I know how you feel since my ovaries went on strike for 12 weeks when I was first post-op I knew they went back to work because I was then having lots of PMS symptoms. Since then, over 2 years ago, they've been working off and on and, today, it looks like I'm going into peri-menopause.

((((Chris)))) even when our ovaries fail, unless they are causing pain or other problems, we can still keep them since they continue to provide some of those useful hormones that are so good for us. It's then easier to supplement our ovaries than to replace the hormones entirely.

Have you mentionned this to your doctor? I did and he suggested I use an OTC natural supplement to help tide me over until my ovaries went back to work. Of course, be sure to discuss this with your doctor since thaking any meds, including natural products, could have adverse effects this early in your recovery.

Sending lots of s your way and hoping that your ovaries go back to work real soon.

I have a question!

Hi - thanks for replying. I'm seeing my doctor on Monday - she said I might need some HRT to tide me over until my ovary works again - assuming it will! She wants to do a blood test first though - which is the part that worries me - if they come back as normal I will start thinking I'm going ga-ga

I have a question!

((((Chris))))) I know just what you mean: I just had some blood work done, a week or so ago, and, among other things, was having my hormone and thyroid levels tested. Of all things to happen, I was actually having PMS symptoms that day One part of me wants the tests to come out normal, but another part of me of me is really hoping for the tests to come back on the low side just to prove that I am not an hypochondriach!!!
