How do they remove cervix?

I was wondering if any of you could tell me (if you had your cervix removed), how they did it.

My sister-in-law had at TAH/BSO, but they removed her cervix vaginally. Is this common? I would have thought they would take it all out through the incision.

Thanks . . . Two more days . . . getting nervous.

P.S. Thanks to the good advice on this site, I am packing a big bag of to put out for my nurses. (A little bribery can't hurt!)

Mine was the size of a soccer ball so it was removed TAH. I think it depends on the size and what else you have going on in there. I had quite a fruit basket, plus found endo once doc opened me up. My doc said when she went to remove my cervix it was glued in due to the endo. My 4" bikini incision quickly turned into a 8" one. It looks great though, once all of my hair grows back you'll never know it was there.

Good luck to you, I'm sure you will be just fine.
