I am shortly going to have a lemon sized cyst removed from one of my ovaries and have been told there is some risk I will lose the ovary itself. Does anyone have just one ovary and have they experienced any fertility problems as a result of this?

well I actually had the op this week, and kept my ovary! i was eventually told there was only a 1-2% chance of losing it anyway. my symptoms from the cyst were severe pains every 1-3 months which ended up with me in a&e. on the fourth visit to a&e i was kept in hospital overnight and the docs finally agreed it should be removed. this was done on tuesday. i was really nervous but it all went well and almost fully recovered now. general anaesthetic was really good, was confused when i woke up but got better. also didn't have as much pain as expected.
