LAVH - how many internal stitches?

I asked my doc. just how many stitches were inside me (I was expecting 1000's) and she said "oh, 2, maybe 3..just on your vaginal cuff". She cauterized everything else. Is this common? I like the idea, just thought it seemed weird that there aren't many stitches after such a surgery.

LAVH - how many internal stitches?

i had an LAVH and my dr cauterized everything but the cuff too she said, though she did at two small stitches(that she took out today) on either end of my incision on the left side of my belly(were she pulled it all out). She said the stitches were added there as a precaution.
