In brief: Yes
If your ovaries were left behind you will continue to experience the cyclical symptoms.
The hysterectomy could however somewhat reduce the symptoms.

In brief: Sometimes
Pms is often caused by cyclic hormone fluctuations regulated by the ovaries.
Therefore, if you had a hysterectomy but left the ovaries you can still have some PMS symptoms. This should not occur if the ovaries were removed.
