Well, your ovary still runs its cycle even though the uterus has been removed. Each month, a normal ovary creates a cyst and then the prostoglandans kick in and the cyst goes back down. If the pain is intermittent, then that is probably is what is going on, but definitely mention it to your doctor at the next go around. However, if your hysterectomy was because of endometriosis, you may want to check in with your doctor to verify that all is well.

You do not state whether you have had pain since the hysterectomy or if this is a recent occurrence or if you are pre,peri or post menopausal.

This could range from a simple cyst to ovarian cancer.

According to medical studies, one of the major causes that has been found out for left ovary pain is cysts formation in the left ovary. Studies showed that a percentage of 95 ovarian cysts are benign, which means patients need not worry at an early stage. But if the pain gets bad and intolerable and patients feel pain often, this can indicate the cysts are malignant.

If you mean by full hysterectomy a total hysterectomy i.e. removal of the uterus and cervix then one ovary will produce the necessary hormones that two ovaries would.

There is some anecdotal evidence that having a hysterectomy may bring on an earlier menopause than would have occurred without.
