Hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus, and therefore a pregnancy cannot occur once this is done. A rare exception to this would be an ectopic pregnancy in the Fallopian tube or abdomen. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when an egg is fertilized outside of the uterus and implants somewhere it isn't supposed to be. This can be serious, and is fortunately extremely rare after a hysterectomy.

What part?


If you still have ovaries there is a rare chance of ectopic pregnancy. Without ovaries you will not create an egg to be fertilized. Without a uterus it would be very difficult to carry a pregnancy.

As long as you have ovaries that produce an egg and sperm have a way to get to the egg then pregnancy is possible. This however is extremely rare because usually the sperm have no way of getting to the egg. The rare circumstance where this occurs usually involve the falopian tube somehow becoming trapped in the top of the vagina during the hysterectomy thus providing a passage way for the sperm

Unlikely


There is a very small chance of having an ectopic pregnancy in the circumstance you describe. If there are any suspicious symptoms, a pregnancy test is still appropriate.

Hysterectomy


That is very unusual. Do you have nausea, vomiting, fevers, abdominal pain, not passing stool? There is no reason for your abdomen to be that distended. Please see your gynecologist again for follow up soon.
