Hysterectomy with one ovary left now it's covered in cysts
I had a total hysterectomy in Jun of 2012 because of complications, they also put in a bladder sling. I was 31 at the the time, now only three months later I am developing numerous cysts on the one ovary that was left and they are blood filled and keep rupturing causing a lot of pain. ( the doc also surgically removed a previous cyst on the remaining ovary) Now the obgyn put me on Errin which is an androgen to see if the cysts shrink. He said if they dont then surgery will be performed to remove the problematic ovary.
I am concerned that I am having so many cysts in such a short amount of time and also the possibility of losing the ovary altogether and going into early menopause. I do not have pcos or endometriosis. why would I be having all these cysts so quickly and has anyone else had this sort of thing happen before? I am frantic and at wits end of having another surgery and the possibility of these cysts turning cancerous. Please and advice would be greatly appreciated! =)

Hi there - I too had a hysterectomy in Nov 2011 left both ovaries. I have had pain for months on my left side and they found a 6 cm ovarian cyst. I had cysts prior to my hyst but they didn't bother me (just showed up on ultrasounds done for other reasons). I went for a repeat ultrasound 4 weeks later and the cyst is down to 2.5cm so that is good. I do, however, have a solid component attached to it that they cannot identify without going in. I had a CA-125 drawn and it was normal so it is not cancerous. My GYN wants to remove it if it is still there in Nov. Hope it helps to know you are not alone! :o)
Thanks for your response! I does help to know I am not alone and am sorry you too are going through my similar situation. I wish the best for you and that the outcome is a manageable one. best wishes in your health
