are there any side effects from having one ovary removed?
A year ago i had cyst the size of a grapefruit removed including my right ovary i still feel pain in that particular area, i gained 15 lbs, gettig facial hair and i costantly dream about babies is this common?
For the first few months it is quite normal to have peri-menopausal symptoms until your other ovary kicks in. The pain could be due to adhesions (see the health pages for ball rolling solution to adhesions) or they may have left an ovarian remnant and you have another cyst there. You should also get checked for PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrom and there is a forum for that here) as weight gain and facial hair can be symptoms of that. Good luck.
