Cervix removed ~ do I need anymore smears?

Hi folks i'm new to this site even though i had my hyster 11 mths ago. I had my cervix removed also as i had repeated abnormal pap smears class 111. Was just wondering if i really need to have any more smears done as doc recommended one more cuff smear to be sure to be sure, but i'm wondering if that's being over cautious - i mean, if i don't have a cervix anymore what's the likelihood of abnormal cells showing up in what's left? Anybody got any opinions on this?? I would really appreciate hearing other experiences. I'm posting from dublin in ireland.

I agree with ((LovetheOcean)). If your doctor has advised this then it's always better to be safe than sorry!

The changes in the surface of the cervix that result in abnormal smears can also occur on the vaginal cuff. Vaginal dysplasia can develop, too, particularly if one has previously had cervical dysplasia. Have you found our <link> Post-Op Page yet? It's packed with information, including an article on this very subject, which explains in greater detail.

Sending all good wishes!

I asked my doc specifically about pap smears. He told me I still needed to come in for an annual check just to make sure everything was normal, but that I would only need a pap every 5 years or so just to make sure. I did have some cervical dysplasia.
