Question PCOS after hysterectomy

Does anyone know if you can still have PCOS symptoms after having a hysterectomy? I am 33 years old and had a hysterectomy with both ovaries removed in August 2004 due to endometriosis and I also had PCOS. I am asking this question because I still get facial hair and I have a hard time losing weight.

Re: PCOS after hysterectomy

GREAT QUESTION !! I would love to know the answer to that one.
I too had a full hyst (kept cervix) done 7 months ago due to moderate to severe Adenomyosis, ovaian cysts PCOS and severe Pelvic Congestion Syndrome.
I was on Metformin, but since the Hyst my OB told me to stop taking it because I dont have my Ovaries anymore.
Yet I too STILL have a hard time loosing weight, and have some facial hair.
My Trys are still high and my HDL are still low. So I dont get it !!

Hi..yeah I think you can because I have a book about PCOS and it says it in that even if you have your ovaries removed you can still have symptons of PCOS, I would assume this would be the same with the uterus..
