I had a large cyst on one ovary and went into hospital at the age of 32 to have this removed. This was before consent forms or anything like that, so there was no discussion. The surgeon, without my knowledge, decided to take out the ovary as well. It caused an early menopause, a risk that was never mentioned. I didn’t realise initially as I continued to have periods but they dwindled. I then found that I was infertile and couldn’t have the children I wanted. It was a traumatic experience for me. I suggest that you speak to your team about the risks of this. As you are rather older, you may have had all the family you want but it’s worth understanding whether you will get an early menopause as a result.
Very best wishes
