Hi,
Hot flashes are because of hormonal imbalance, but this should not result after removal of one ovary and at such a young age. The pain can be because of post-operative adhesions, infection, ovarian cysts etc. An ultrasound scan may be necessary to make a diagnosis. Consult a gynaecologist for an evaluation.
Hope this helps.

In this post you mentioned that the hot flashes should not result from removal of one ovary at such a young age. I had posted a related question several weeks ago, and didn't get an answer. I thought since you had answered this one, I would ask. I am 33years old. Had my right ovary and tube removed due to 9.4cm endometrioma 12/20/11. Since late in January, I have been having symptoms of menopause; hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, moodiness, etc. Is it possible that my remaining ovary is failing and that I am going into early menopause? My GYN checked my thyroid, which came back normal. She started me on Lo-Seasonique to try to regulate hormone levels, and my GP started me on Lunesta for the insomnia. I still have the INSANE hot flashes, night sweats, and moodiness. Could it be ovarian failure, or is this maybe the left ovary having difficulty trying to keep up with the hormone balance now that its "partner" is gone? Thank you so much! H
