Yes!: Absolutely! please continue seeing your gynecologist annually even after having a hysterectomy. At this visit, your physician will discuss your overall health and well-being. Also, since you are now surgically post-menopausal, your doctor will help you prevent problems such as osteoporosis. Importantly, you will still benefit from a regular pelvic and breast exam.
