In brief: Yes
Since the uterus is still present, cancer can develop in it.
Additionally, even with ovaries removed, there are sometimes ovarian cells present that may lead to ovarian or "primary peritoneal" cancer from similar cells lining the abdominal cavity.

In brief: Depends
If your uterus was not removed then you can still get uterine cancer.
If you still have your uterus you should continue to get pap smears.
