Is it an outdoor fuchsia, if so, they are hardly out yet.
Did you see the bug, most times its the vine weevil do damage on fuchsias, if it is you can either buy Provado vine weevil killer or nematodes. By now the bug will have laid eggs and the grubs will chew the roots.
It will sprout out again, but will flower much later, everytime its stopped, it takes 3 weeks to catch up. But if you really dont like the dead bits, chop them out.
I never cut back any fuchsia, hardy or not, until the Spring.
