chris, I also had a TAH , but I was left with the right ovary. She also cut adhesions, and placed Interceed. I have been having a lot of abdominal pain, and bowel problems, which she's done nothing about. Friday, I had a pelvic CAT scan, and it showed some increased linear stranding deep in the pelvis.(have no idea what that means?) Also showed some mild circumferential thickening of the walls of the rectum. They say maybe secondary to the surgery. (6 weeks ago, today.) She refused to order that test, or any others. The new family Dr. ordered it. They want me to see a gastro. When you have a lot of questions for yourDr., write them down. Don't be afraid to ask. She mentioned minimal endometriosis, but I don't think she tried to do much about it, except take a lot of things. Keep your chin up. I know it's rough. Millie
