In May 2007 I had a lap myomectomy for what I thought was 3 fibroid tumors. After surgery, while in the hospital I was told that 4 were removed which I didnt think anything of at the time. During my 1st post op visit the dr showed me pictures of what was removed and commented that he "almost" removed an ovary thinking it was a fibroid. I thought it was strange tha he would even discuss this, but again, I let it go. I found out less than one year later I had 3 more fibroids. During the vaginal ultrasound I requested that she locate both ovaries. Only one could be detected. My ob-gyn explained that this could be because of gas. A few weeks later I had an MRI and was given very precise dimensions of my right ovary but yet again, no left ovary could be detected. During my visit to discuss the results he told me yet again, "it's not uncommon, could just be gas". The thought that he might have removed my ovary and is hiding it from me is disturbing. I think back now that maybe the 4th fibroid was indeed my ovary :(. Can't you normally feel ovaries during a routine OBYGYN check up? What else can I do to verify I do have both ovaries? I was thinking an MRI would be the most precise of all tests but would appreciate any help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
