Hi,

The vaginal cuff is when they sew the vagina together after removing the cervix. It forms a cuff, sort of like sewing one end of a sock.

So if they removed your cervix, you have one!

Welcome Sister of the Cuff...LOL


So how are you doing in your recovery?
Tell us alittle about yourself...are you having hotflashes, are you on HRT...what do you do for a living...come on....some of us are nosy..LOL

No j/k...but we would like to you to the sisterhood!
This is a wonderful place to be. AFter you have been here awhile, you get to meet some wonderful people.
Matter of fact, my Richmond, VA sisters had a luncheon but I was unable to go due to last surgery, but I am setting up a lunch with one of them before the next sister luncheon.
At the bottom of the site there is a place that goes state by state to meet other sisters in your area to talk to and some of them get together and have lunch. Ic an't wait for mine, see some of my sisters in person and give them a big hug!

There is a good drawing of how the body looks after hysterectomy on this site. It helped me visualize it...

Sure Marian go ahead... Glad if it can help someone.

I found this drawing by searching the net. It is kind of silly but, I had trouble understanding how everything would just stay there without dropping out of my body!

Hi Marian, Thanks for the warm welcome!! I am 2 weeks post op from a TAH/BSO. I am 39 years old and have two teenage boys and a wonderful DH (what exactly does the D mean) I am a secretary at a middle school here in my hometown. Missing work alot right now. I am lucky to have a wonderful workplace and absolutly love my job (make no money) but that is o.k. I am feeling pretty good. Having hot flashes at night and not sleeping well. My mouth feels dry throughout the night and have a dry cough that irritates me. Went shopping this evening to find a new Christmas Tree. I was so sore by the time we left. Sitting here resting in the recliner now. So what is your story?? I am a little nosy too.
Lori
