I am 52, and due to have my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed by keyhole surgery as precautionary measure to avoid ovarian cancer, which my mother developed in her mid fifties. I have not had a period for nearly 4 years so assume I am already post menopausal. Will I still notice any hormonal effects after the removal of my ovaries, or not. Also will the scars heal over after surgery. A few of my friends think this is a drastic measure to take as I am fit and well at the moment. I have never had any surgery so am obviously anxious about quite a few things, but do not wish to go through the same symptoms that my mother went through after developing the disease. Hope somebody can reply to this for me. Thank you.
