What is your age?  Ovarian cysts are indeed very painful, but I'm surprised at any doctor who would automatically reject the notion of hormone therapy after a hysterectomy (unless, of course, you are nearing menopause, and even then I would protest the approach in your shoes).  I would talk to a different ob-gyn.  

ps -- Your sex life is not kaput after a hysterectomy.  The uterus is not necessary for having sex, it's not your vagina.  But I would ask about the hormones for this reason alone.
