I'm sorry one of your ovaries was removed. So I assume it kept growing hence the need for removal and it was too difficult to remove the cyst and save the ovary?

Removal of one or both ovaries is associated with some increased health risks. The risks appear to be much greater if both are removed.

Thnq for responding.deep down am really worried and scared doctor didn't tell of any risks when i asked he said now that you dont want any more issues(i have 2 daughters)removing it wont affect you the other ovary will do its task...googling made me stressed out
Should i relieve myself as only one is removed and i still have other organs along with uterus and tubes
Yes, unfortunately, all you can do is "accept" it and move forward. Seek some counseling if necessary. I had to go through a bit of counseling after all my reproductive organs (that are actually needed for so much more than reproduction) were needlessly removed.
