Removal Of Cervix After Supracervical Hysterectomy

It depends: A Pap test, also called a Pap smear, is a routine screening test for early diagnosis of cervical cancer. If you had a partial hysterectomy — when the uterus is removed but the lower end of the uterus (cervix) remains — your health care provider will likely recommend continued Pap tests. Similarly, if you had a partial hysterectomy or a total hysterectomy — when both the uterus and cervix are removed — for a cancerous or precancerous condition, regular Pap tests are still recommended as an early detection tool to monitor for a new cancer or precancerous change. You can stop having Pap tests, however, if you had a total hysterectomy for a noncancerous condition. Your age matters, too. If you're unsure whether you still need Pap tests, discuss with your doctor what's best for you. ...Read more

Ask the surgeon: The restrictions that your surgeon gave you post op for the length of time that you should not insert anything into the vagina should also apply to anal sex.
