welcome to healthcaremagic
it is unlikely if total hysterectomy was done for cancer unless tubes and ovaries were left behind and there is connection through vaginal vault and peritoneal cavity
please get a check up with gynecologist and find out and get treatment .if it is pregnancy it may be ectopic one that needs treatment some times chrio carcinoma in ovaries if it was left behind may give rise to positive pregnancy report

it is required to consult gynecologist soon
