Anon - Why is your doctor recommending a complete hysterectomy if the issue is confined to one ovary? I would certainly consider getting a second opinion from another gynecologist. Most insurance companies will cover this, and even if they don't, it is in your best interests to explore all of your options before having any type of surgical procedure. Let us know what you decide to do. We wish you all the best.
