dumb question

I feel really dumb now....I had a partial hysterectomy in sept 2001, well I went to the Obgyn for my yearly check up 2 weeks ago.Thats when I found out that I'm in menapause.I called for my results and the nurse told me that after a hysterectomy you don't get a pap.Is this true for everyone? If so how do they check for anything out of the ordinary?Boy did I feel stupid.LOL

Re: dumb question

My mom had a hysterectomy and she still gets check ups at the GYN dr.. I think she goes every two years. They took her uterus but not her ovaries. And remember no question is a dumb question when it comes to your health.

Thanks,
I was just surprised when they said they just do a pelvic exam. I don't know maybe I just never thought about it.
Thanks again,

Sue
