bleeding ovarian cyst

I have had Lower R side pain x 4 days with a fever, I went to ER with pain I had never had before, they thought it was my appedix, after a CT, U/S and an abd x-ray and labs, I was told I had a
4 x 4 1/2 cm bleeding cyst on my R ovary. I am due for a hysterectomy Oct 4th due to soo many problems, my question is, will they have to take that ovary now also with the hysterectomy?  I wanted to leave the ovaries. What causes a bleeding cyst? Should I worry? I have a follow up appt in 4 days with my GYN doc.

Thank You~

they will probably take the bad ovary out, if your left one is fine they will probably leave it. are you close to reaching your "change of life"?.or are you younger. i had been having cronic (chronic) pelvic pain for a while, the thought it was scar tissue so they went in to remove it and ended up taking my right ovary due to large amounts of cysts,and discovered a large uterine fibroid, i ended up having a hysterectomy on aug 3rd, they left my one remaining ovary do to the fact im only 29 and they didnt want to put me into surgical menopause.there is always the possibility that the left one will fail. so...... if your left ovary is fine i would guess they will leave that. good luck

the blood test is probably a ca-125 test that detects ovarian cancer, or if she's about to have surgery it could be a hemoglobin,or white blood count maybe. if she is able to keep just one ovary she will still ovulate and everything should continue to work just fine.

I am having the surgery vaginaly. For the faster recovery time, thats for sure. Still very nervous through, my pain is still there, not as bad as it was, but still bothersome.

i am feeling GREAT its only been about 3 weeks since my surgery and i havent felt this good in 3 years. i had an lavh, what type are you having? if your able to i would definatly ask for an lavh instead of abdominal,there is a much longer and harder recovery time.

I hope yoy will find a Doctor willing to try and save your ovary,I personally regret not having explored better options than just removal, Today I have one ovary left at 43 and I am dealing with chronic problems of cyst.Should they cause so much pain?
