A total hysterectomy removes the entire uterus.  It is the ovaries that are most critical for sexual function because they control hormones.  If they were going to remove the tubes and ovaries it would be total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.  

Many conditions can be treated with less invasive procedures than hysterectomy these days.  A second opinion may be in order.
