Spaghetti sans meatball with eggs …

I remember asking my doc before the hysterectomy, What happens when the uterus is gone … is there a big space?  Apparently this analogy is quite common: the uterus is the meatball and the intestines are like spaghetti … once the meatball is gone the spaghetti fills in the space.  Makes you hungry, doesn’t it? 😉

And according to The Essential Guide to Hysterectomy (2nd ed.) by Dr. Lauren F. Streicher:

One common question is, What happens to the eggs after hysterectomy when their is no … uterus to go to?  Contrary to what you might be picturing, the eggs don’t pile up on the floor of your pelvis.  The body simply absorbs them.

And with that thought I guess I’ll go eat breakfast now … but not eggs — I don’t like them.

UPDATE 11/29/2014:

After the effects of Effexor (venlaxine) on my taste buds in 2013, I started to have many food aversions — hating things I once liked.  I am beginning to like eggs again!  I’m so very happy about this!  I also had a craving for popcorn last night!

I took Effexor (venlafaxine) for hot flashes — vasomotor symptoms — with the onset of perimenopause.  Effexor (venlafaxine) is most commonly prescribed for depression.
