Vaginal cuff???? What is it????

Okay what is it. I had my pre-op today and totally missed what he was trying to tell me. I think is was about the time I wanted to pass out just by being in the office. GREAT I am going to be a basket case on Monday.

He is not sure if my cervix is staying or going. But he did say something about a Vaginal cuff?

Do any of the Sisters know exactly what this is?

Vaginal cuff???? What is it????

Hi,

If you have your cervix removed, the surgeon takes the end of the vagina where the cervix was located and puts a line of sutures in it to sew it shut.

Imagine a paper towel cardboard tube or the sleeve on a shirt. If you pinch the end together and sew it, it forms a blind pouch. This dead-end that is sewn shut is what is known as the vaginal cuff.

Best wishes on your surgery and s,

Lisa

Lisa,

Thank you so much for the info. So if he takes the cervix I guess I will have a vaginal cuff?

Think of it this way -- without a cervix there is no chance of cervical cancer -- and no more pap smears.
