I read in a thread that someone having their cervix removed would have more internal stitching to deal with. That makes sense...but how will the recovery be different compared to someone who opted to not have it out? Or how will the stiches affect recovery?
I had my cervix removed and never felt the stitches and didn't see but one come out. I still had a couple at the appointment but everything else was good so was released to return to life. Not had any problems with them.
As far as having more, I think it depends on the surgeon, exactly how much was taken, etc. etc.
the recovery is faster if you dont have your cervix removed because you dont have the vaginal cuff to heal. the top of the cervix is cauterized, not stitched. you have to be more careful if you have the stitches that you dont do anything too soon to cause harm.
