Shocked to wake up w/ no cervix

I can understand your frustration of having cervix removed when this isn't what you planned.
I just wanted to let you know that I had a TAH and don't miss my cervix at all. DH said that there is no difference sex wise (when we were having sex before the chronic pain took over). When I got the nerve to inspect for myself, I knew what my cervix felt like and it just felt pretty normal except I didn't feel that rounded part of the cervix.
It should have been on your surgery consent form that it was a possibility..if it wasn't, then call your doc and ask him specifically why he felt the need to remove it. Just so you have some peace of mind.
I wish you the best.

Dueling, please try to see the positive side of not having your cervix. It will help you come to terms with what happened. I'm sure your doctor had your best interests at heart!

1) Orgasms are still going to be awesome, as many of us cervixless women can attest.

2) No mini-periods! No cramps! No PMS!

3) No worrying about cervical cancer or endocervical polyps.

I am sorry you had bad news when you woke up from your surgery. Sometimes the sonograms don't show everything even though they do a good job most of the time. I don't think tests of any kind are perfect, there is always room for error. Also drs never know for sure what they will find until they get inside. The type of surgery makes a difference as well, especially if there is not enough room to see or work in.

I think our drs do the best they can for us. I feel most of them have our best interests at heart.

I have had my cervix removed and not had any problem with sexual function. Many women don't have a problem with having it out, however be aware that some here on the site do, but that does not mean you will. Remember a lot of the ladies that come here are the ones having a problem. The ones that are fine don't come back to tell us most of the time.

If you are concerned about more information concerning what was done in surgery you can always ask to see your surgery report, it is yours to see. The dr can explain it to you , since sometimes they are hard to read with the medical terminology and all.

I will be thinking of you and hoping you will be able to move on from this difficult time and continue having a great recovery.
