PCOS after Hysterectomy?
My doctor keeps telling me I have PCOS. Is that possible after having a complete hysterectomy? I am confused.

Here, this is what a I found:

Hysterectomy for PCOS
Conducting a hysterectomy for PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is controversial. PCOS increases the risk of certain cancers, including ovarian and uterine cancer. Doctors may suggest a hysterectomy as a last resort for PCOS treatment if the risk of cancer is high, especially if the woman is postmenopausal.

Keep in mind that polycystic ovarian syndrome involves many hormonal and metabolic issues. While removal of the ovaries will reduce the amount of male hormones PCOS produces, it may not alleviate all symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
