Trust me, your life is far from over.  Having your ovaries out is really hard, but there are hormone replacements that you can go on (I recommend bio-identicals) that help with menopausal symptoms.  I too have been thrown into surgical menopause (only for a few months because I have Ovarian Remnant Syndrome) and my doctor had the hormone patch on me before I even came too in recovery.  I know that most women have problems with vaginal dryness (thats what they make KY for ;-) and no sex drive, but I have to tell you that I had a bigger sex drive because I wasn't in pain all the time.  What type of surgery did you have?  Usually it takes 2-6 weeks for one to heal from a laprascopic surgery and 6-8 weeks for a laparotomy.  You may want to give your gynecologist a call and see what he has to say.  Keep in mind that you are only 4 days out of surgery.  It is normal to feel a bit down afterwards.  I hope you get some answers soon and your days start to look brighter.  We are here anytime you need us.
