I would go to the hospital medical record dept and ask for a copy of your operative report, it should be on the op report if your ovaries were removed. My mom died of ovarian-breast cancer at 44 so I know your concern, for that reason when I had to have a hysterectomy my ovaries were removed. At 41 I had already had a cancer scare with a complex cyst removed from my ovary and due to my family hx my surgeon opted to take my ovaries as well. Good Luck to you, If you do have your ovaries I would get yearly checkups and a CA-125, blood test for ca. Ovarian ca is difficult to diagnosis until its advanced and most often too late.
