How do they sew you up after cervix removal?

When they take your cervix what is left? I mean do they sew the top up? Is the vagina shorter?
And if they do a incission in the stomach to remove the uterus do they remove the cervix that way or do they still go through the vagina? I'm asking my doctor to take my cervix as there are folks in my family who have had cervical cancer. Dang I'm nervous when I use the C word!

Hi Jan,

When the cervix is removed, the top of the vagina is stitched shut creating a vaginal cuff. You might find these articles helpful:

Vagina - Hysterectomy Make It Shorter?

If you have an abdominal hysterectomy, the cervix can be removed through the abdominal incision as it is the lower part of the uterus.

I wish you the best with your upcoming surgery! Hang in there!

s, Deb
