Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Ovarian cyst develops many hormonal imbalance .
Before any surgery at least we should assess the valuation of every hormones.
There is increase in the level of androgen .
Alteration in the ratio of F S H/L H .
Level of estrogen ( estradiol),
If there is dysfunctional uterine bleeding or not.
Atretric follicles with increased ovarian stroma.
Since left ovary is completely removed , so for right ovary , we should try to cure this with conservative treatment.
leuprolid acetate ( depot luprone ) will act or not it depends upon hormonal values.
In my opinion you should consult one more gynaecologist and get his opinion after complete hormonal values .
Good luck.
