  • I haven't. I'm not sure how it's possible unless one ovary one fallopian tube and the uterus were left in tact but my understanding is they usually take both ovaries and or the uterus. The only exception being having a fertilized egg implanted into the uterus if it is still there

  • well if it was only a partial then they may have left one good ovary and the uterus. What did they remove? Its possible if it was turely only a partial, although more difficult.
