In brief: Yes
Yes. It's simple.
An egg retrieval involves placing a needle into the ovary. No cervix or uterus needed.

In brief: Usually
After hysterectomy-including-cervix (total hysterectomy, ) a woman may be suitable for ultrasound-guided egg retrieval just like any other if the ovaries remain.
In some cases after major pelvic surgery transvaginal egg retrieval could be difficult or impossible if the pelvic anatomy has been significantly distorted.
