If you have a total or radical hysterectomy , your cervix and uterus will be removed. More extensive than a total hysterectomy, a radical hysterectomy also involves removal of the upper part of the vagina and additional tissue adjacent to the uterus. The top part of your vagina — where your upper vagina or cervix used to be — will be sewn together as part of this procedure. This is called closing the vaginal cuff. Keep reading to learn what you can expect after a vaginal cuff procedure, tips for recovery, symptoms to watch for, and more. Vaginal cuff recovery usually takes at least eight weeks , though it often takes longer.

Laparoscopically Assisted Vaginal Hysterectomy: What to Expect at Home
A hysterectomy is surgery to take out a woman's uterus, the organ in a woman's belly where a baby grows during pregnancy. After a hysterectomy, you will not be able to get pregnant. Other organs might also be removed if you have severe problems such as endometriosis or cancer. These organs include the cervix the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina , the ovaries glands on both sides of the uterus that release eggs for pregnancy , and the fallopian tubes the passageway between the uterus and the ovaries. Whether or not the ovaries are removed will depend on your age and risk for certain types of cancer.
Few cases of intraoperative or postoperative complications associated with laparoscopic adnexal surgery have been reported in the literature. We describe a case of laparoscopic abdominal vascular injury and persistent bleeding in the matrix of the ovary following laparoscopic cystectomy. During the first postsurgical day, the patient was syncopal. The physical examination showed a vulvar hematoma and minimal bleeding from a laparoscopic incision in the abdominal wall. Vulvar hematoma and an unstable patient may signal serious vascular bleeding.
