Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. PArtial hysterectomy wont affect or harm you, any surgery is a stress and stress can flare MS but compliance to medications will take care of it.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
