TVH cervix removed?

I just found out today that my doc also took out my cervix. Is that normal? Did anyone else have their cervix removed as well? I mean, not that I need it, but still I was surprised ya know. I had a tubal done 2 years ago, and now a TVH. So all I have left are my ovaries.

Re: TVH cervix removed?



If you had a TVH like I did, then yes, your cervix was removed. The cervix isn't a separate organ but the lower portion of the uterus, so when you have a TVH, there's no way to keep it. Like you, I still have my ovaries, too.

I hope your recovery is going well!

My dr showed me a picture and made sure I understood. Guess if your mom kept hers you might think the same, if they didn't explain it to you. Some do keep the cervix but then it can't be a vag hyst.

Hmmm strange. Hers was done vaginally, as she has NO scars, but she's got her cervix still.

All I know is mine is gone! LOL

I had mine removed when I had my hysterectomy done Tuesday. I knew it was going to happen. I had been diagnosed with "chronic cervicitis" and was glad to see it go.

Re: TVH cervix removed?



How long ago did your mom have her hysterectomy? There is a new, not often used, very specialized method that does allow a surgeon to leave the cervix during a vaginal hysterectomy. But more than likely, if a vaginal hysterectomy is done, the cervix is removed since it is the neck of the uterus (not a separate organ) and thus below the rest of the uterus.

Your mom might want to get copies of her surgical reports and see what they say, especially if her surgery was some time back. It is possible she also had her cervix removed but didn't realize it!

hers was done like 25 years ago. Ya know, I bet your right. I bet she had it removed and has no idea it's gone! LOL

I mean it seems obvious that it would be taken out. Maybe she just does not know...or who knows...maybe it really was not removed! Who knows! All I know is mine is gone! lol!
