what happens to your cervix w/ a partial hysterectomy

one question I have, and can't find an answer to is what procedure is done to your cervix with a partial hysterectomy, I never bothered to ask my DR. Do they sew it closed?

I think the cervix is typically cauterized, as dressedupinblue mentioned. I ended up with a few stitches in mine since the doctor actually removed about 1/4 of my cervix. It wasn't intentional, and I think the surgical report said something like my cervix was probably shorter than they thought. He showed me the "after" pictures at my 1-week follow-up appointment, and I could see the dissolvable sutures in there. I don't think that's the norm, however.

I asked my doctor beforehand, and he said he wouldn't sew it shut but would cauterize it, which would cause the oening to scar shut.

What I really want to know is what they do with the fallopian tubes if the ovaries are retained-are they tied somehow?

I would think that the fallopian tubes would also be cauterized. It's fairly typical for surgeons to use harmonic scalpels or electrocautery to cut tissue and seal vessels, etc.
