Questions ~ vaginal cuff and stitches

Ok I'm having a TLH on the 9th and was wondering what a vaginal cuff is and will I have to have one? And if I'm going to have stiches in the inside?

Re: Questions

A TLH or any hyst that removes the cervix means you'll have a vaginal cuff. That's just where they sew shut the area where they removed the uterus/cervix, and so there are internal stitches for that. That's just a quick explanation, I hope it makes sense.

Greyown is correct. If you think tube sock, you will have a nice visual of what they do.
