User :   its the lower
Doctor :  
during your hysterctomy, were the tubes and ovaries removed?
User :   I have one ovary left and had an ultra soung a month ago and they couldny find it because all they could see is stool.
Doctor :   in that case i will suggest you to get a ultrasound abdomen and pelvis done, also along with this do a urine pregnancy test too.
User :   I cant be pegnant I have no uterus
Doctor :   you will need to prepare the bowel for the stools such that they do not create problems in visualization.
Doctor :   the pregnancy can take place in the tubes or ovaries and in rare cases in the abdominal cavity itself
Doctor :  
so get a trans vaginal ultrasound done in case the urine pregnancy test comes positive
