In November of 2019, I had surgery to remove a very large (30 cm! nearly 15 lbs.), benign, fluid filled cyst on my left ovary. During surgery, I also lost my left ovary and tube. I was 37 years old at the time of my surgery. I am an average size woman. (5ft. 6in. tall, and I weighed about 130 lbs. after surgery.)
Ever since then, (a year and a half later) I’ve had extreme difficulty getting up in the morning. I’m also depressed in ways I was not before having surgery. I’m also gaining weight without changing my diet, I’m losing a lot of hair (I’ve always had thicker hair), and my skin has become much drier. (I’ve always had more oily type skin.) I’ve felt like I lost a part of myself, and I just cry and cry for hours sometimes.
I had my thyroid checked and it is normal. Is there anything you can recommend for symptoms like these after losing an ovary from a benign, ovarian cyst?
Thank you for your time and help!
