Severe Ovary Pain

I've been having severe pains in my left ovary for quite sometime now.This time I've had the pain for 2 days which I've never had and my stomach looks like Im 4 mths pregnant even tho Im not.I've had a partial hysterectomy over 4 yrs ago now and while I was having a Hernia operation the Gyn looked at my Ovarys and said they were perfectly fine.Gyn said he could put my Ovarys to sleep only if I quit smoking first.He said as long as I continue to smoke I will allways have pain in my left Ovary.Any advice

Hi There
Pain is a very complex issue. If your ovaries looked normal at your last surgery, your pain may be due to something else.  Pain in the setting of normal appearing organs is rarely fixed by removing those organs. You should see your primary care doctor and work with him/her on evaluation of pain and pain interventions. There are pain specialists who can who with you on what might be an appropriate intervention for you (examples: biofeedback, counseling, various medications, acupuncture and so on)
best wishes
