OVCA even after ovaries have been removed?

I've been told that you can still get ovarian cancer even after your ovaries have been removed.  Is this true?  If it is, can you please explain how this can happen if you don't have ovaries?
Thanks!

Yes, it can happen.  It is called Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma.
