Unexpected side effect

I never imagined in my wildest dreams that hysterectomy would fix my chronic constipation.  But it has.  I have not changed my diet.  I am not eating some uber fiber diet and drinking 12 1/2 quarts of water a day.  I am eating the same ol’ whatever every day and somehow sans uterus I’m having regular poops … no more of those itty bitty hard as rock pebbles anymore.  TMI?  Well, you are reading a hysterectomy blog — what did you expect?!

Are you learning anything yet?

I love how the caption bubble for the intestines-colon is the color brown.

I love how the caption bubble for the intestines-colon is the color brown.  A good learning cartoon!

I ❤ having my uterus out.  The regularity and fecal fluffiness provides me with joy every morning.   The happiness in simple stuff … I really am getting old … but I’m not as full of sh*t as I used to be!

P.S. I just found this study …

Preservation of the cervix seemed to be associated with an increased risk of the development of constipation.

CONCLUSIONS:
Hysterectomy does not seem to cause constipation. In nearly half of the patients reporting constipation before hysterectomy, this symptom will disappear.
