Dear Patricia

If you have a tummy tuck which I am assuming is what you are referring to, then yes you will still be able to fall pregnant. A “heist” is short for a hysterectomy. A hysterectomy is name of an operation that is performed to remove the uterus or the womb. You cannot be a uterus donor; at this stage uterine transplantation is not possible.
