Ovary removal or oophorectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing one or both ovaries. Here, we will outline the typical process for ovary removal surgery.
Before your surgery, you will discuss the procedure with your surgeon. They will review your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for surgery. You must stop taking certain medications in the days leading up to the surgery.
These medications include aspirin and blood thinners to reduce the risk of bleeding during the procedure.
Generally, we perform ovary removal through an open incision or laparoscopic surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive and typically has a shorter recovery time.
But your surgeon will determine which method is best for your specific situation. During the surgery, you will be under general anaesthesia to ensure that you are unconscious and do not feel any pain. Your surgeon will then make one or more incisions in your abdomen and remove one or both ovaries.
After the surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room to allow the anesthesia to wear off. You may feel nauseous, but these signs reduce within a few hours. You can’t go home the same day or stay in the hospital for a few days.
Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on self-care after the surgery, including how to care for the incision site and when to resume normal activities.
You may experience discomfort or pain in the days and weeks following the surgery. But you can manage them with over-the-counter pain medications.
You should also attend follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure you are healing.
Typically, we perform ovary removal surgery to treat conditions, including:
Some risks associated with ovary removal surgery include bleeding, infection, damage to surrounding organs and complications from anaesthesia. It can lead to early menopause in some cases, which may cause symptoms like hot flashes, mood changes and vaginal dryness. The reason behind early menopause is the surgical removal of both ovaries.
You can expect to stay in the hospital for 1 to 2 days after the surgery. You should avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activity for several weeks. It may take several weeks to recover completely from the surgery.
Women concerned about fertility after ovary removal surgery should discuss their options with their doctor.
You will enter menopause and face symptoms related to hormone changes after ovary removal. If the surgery involves the removal of only one ovary, hormone levels may be affected. But the remaining ovary should be able to compensate.
