cervical cauterization / vaginal cuff.....whats the diff.?

Hi,

not sure how to explain my question; I had my surgery and they left the cervix and they cauterized it...

from this site, I have learned that when you take out the cervix the doctors performed a "cuff" , and then there is the vagina and at the end the cuff, right?

when there is a cervix and is cauterized does this mean its similar to the cuff? is there an opening up there that leads to your insides?

I'm sorry for my stupid question, but I tried to find the answer and not been able to find anything.

thank you,

blessings,

Wish I could tell you , but I don't know. I wouldn't think they would leave an opening, because that would allow any infection to get directly into your abdomen..

If they leave the cervix, there really isn't a difference on the vagina side of the cervix. When the cauterize it, they cauterize on the uterus side of the cervix. Nothing is really changed on the vagina side.
