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 (syndrome) and there is a forum for that here) as weight gain and facial hair can be symptoms of that.  Good luck.
