Re: ovarian remnant syndrome
Well that's quite interesting. Why on earth do you have an ovarian remnant in the first place if your ovaries were supposed to have been removed ? I was under the impression that they simply snipped them off so there should not be any remnants. Are they sure that this is what it is ? Do you still have your tubes and uterus ?
Like you I would have a tendency to believe that if a remnant can produce a cyst it would also produce estrogen and testosterone (and the other hormones it produces). Perhaps a hormonal test might be in order to check your levels and adjust them as necessary. Are you having any symptoms that would point towards a hormonal imbalance (mood swings, bowel issues, temperature changes etc..) ?
This sounds a bit fishy. I would definitely get a second opinion on this one and perhaps another ultrasound just to be sure that this is what was seen and not something else (like a cyst on a kidney or something which are also very common).
Sorry I cannot be of any more help. Just thought I would offer my two cents worth.
