If her ovaries have also been removed, then she may experience shifts in her hormone levels which may have a knock on effect for arousal, and general feelings of wellbeing (both which may impact on interest in sex). However, if she has not had ovaries removed, then a reduction in sex drive may be related to the immediate post-surgical adjustment or due to psychological factors such as loss of (or confirmation of loss of...) fertility, feeling 'not whole' or unfeminine.
