Re: OMG 1 week till surgery & doctor changes mind.. PLEASE reply if cervix removed!

I had TVH 12 weeks ago, with cervix removed. My greatest apprehension before the surgery was the same as yours--feared loss of sex drive and or orgasms. Anyway, I'm happy to report that I have suffered none of that! I have not noticed any vaginal shortening (that I'm aware of), and orgasms are about the same--slightly different feeling, but same frequency. My sex drive has not changed, except that I am not hampered anymore by massive bleeding.
I have a friend that had a DaVinci with cervix removed a few weeks before I had my surgery, and I had called her in a panic right before my surgery with concerns about sexual dysfunction. She reported to me that her orgasms were quite normal (and intense) after her DaVinci.
That being said, if you feel very strongly about keeping your cervix, you should keep looking for a doctor who has experience in that area. There is no substitution for trusting your own instincts, even if it means waiting longer for your surgery.
I wish you the best of luck, and hope you will be able to post your own Post-surgery success story in a couple months!

It has been 20 months since my hysterectomy and I have no regrets about removing my cervix. I have had no issues, I was worried about changes in the structure of my vaginal canal, however, So I did ask my gynecologist to prod around in there the following year just to allay my fears. Since I have a good relationship with my doctor, this didn't feel invasive, just thorough.
