(I found the following by googling. I know that after I've had long surgery that I had hair loss- the stress,likely.)
The stress from surgery can cause hair loss in genetically prone women. If you had your ovaries removed, the changes in hormones may produce a imbalance which may lead to your hair loss. Women normally produce male hormones in small quantities and they are offset against the large amounts of female estrogens. With the ovaries gone, the balance is tipped and this could be the cause of your â€˜male likeâ€™ crown hair loss. Speak with your doctor about hormone replacement therapy.
