Ovarian remnant syndrome

Pelvic pain due to leftover ovarian tissue after removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Ovarian remnant syndrome can cause cyclic pain and pressure on the vagina, rectum, bladder, and ureter. The ovarian remnants may be removable with laparoscopy. A qualified gynecologist familiar with the condition should be consulted.

pelvic pain, sometimes cyclic, typically occurring several weeks or months after oophorectomy, usually associated with a pelvic mass, most frequently a corpus luteum cyst, which occasionally leads to unilateral ureteral obstruction. It is due to survival of an ovarian fragment after the operation.
