Two and a half weeks ago I had a total hysterectomy(uterus, cervix, and fallopian tubes) for a large fibroid and extended heavy periods(10-14 days). Going into surgery, I was fully expecting to have both ovaries left in tact. Because I had a growth(turned out to be a large benign cyst) on my left ovary, my Dr. decided to remove it to be safe. I actually feel pretty good, but I have three questions.
The first is, how will losing one ovary affect my hormones? I know I won't go into menopause just losing one. I feel sort of weird, like I don't have a lot of hormones right now. Not that it's a bad thing. I'm probably used to too many hormones and the constant emotional up and downs. I'm not having any of that right now. I can only think that I feel a little "down." I'm not sure if that even makes sense.
My second question is, after the surgery, the only pain I am feeling(other than my occasional bawl issue) is pain in what feels like my right ovary. Literally, the only thing left seems to be hurting like a constant ovulation pain. Is that normal? It just seems very weird.
And finally, my third question is that I have a teenage daughter and she is claiming that my "lack of hormones" is affecting her. She is now over a week late for her period(no she is not sexually active/pregnant). Can my lack of cycle be affecting hers? I've heard that women tend to cycle together, so that is why I am asking. Thank you.
