I feel like my body is failing me to an extent.. I was dx'ed with PCOS when i was about 20 always had problems, but 3 yrs ago i had a partial hysterectomy , i still have my right ovary but nothing else, I've been having some discomfort on my right side on and off for the last few months, but now my facial hair is getting worse and out of the blue, my weight is starting to climb, my skin is breaking out... I don't know what is going on with my body, all my tests come back fine...
Any suggestions?????

You may have developed a cyst on the right ovary especially since you have PCOS. You said all your tests came back "fine." What tests were run? And where in the normal range are they? Sometimes the bottom or top of the range is not "fine" for any one individual. Did you have your thyroid checked? Hysterectomy (even with ovary preservation) can upset the endocrine system. I have heard of other women developing acne after hysterectomy which could indicate that testosterone levels increased. Good luck in getting answers.
