In brief: Hemmorhage

Although i was not there, the most likely reason for an emergency hysterectomy is hemmorhage or too much bleeding.
Although this would be a last resort, it may be necessary to save a life. If you have questions, i would reccomened requesting a copy of your records and/or going back and asking her what happened and what measures she took before the hysterectomy.
