Cyst would be removed 2. Cyst and right tube and 3 would be removal of right ovary when I woke I found out my right ovary was removed all done laparoscopically. I have had no bleeding but I seem to be having hot flashes. How has anyone else done and or any symtoms. I'm in my 40 and already have had kids.

    Just to be clear: Do you still have your left ovary?

    If so, my case isn't comparable because all my repro organs were removed & doc gave me a shot of hormones on the operating table. I was 27 & did HRT w/premarin for 27 yrs.

    Talk to your doc/surgeon/gyn. Given your age, they may feel that HRT is a bad idea.

    It’ll get better. My right ovary was removed a month ago and the first 2 weeks were the worse, the hot flashes started almost immediately but started getting better little by little. Now I don’t get them every day but for example last night I woke up twice because of it and had to change my T-shirt ...wishing a speedy recovery to you
