I had a total hysterectomy (uterus & cervix) in March 2007. Immediately following my surgery I was constipated. I am still dealing with chronic constipation. Sometimes trying a new diet helps... but only for a week or two... sometimes eating soup all day helps too. But the surest way I know to get "things" moving is to drink a couple big glasses of water or other fluids & hold it in as long as I can... I believe that my full bladder pushes against my colon, providing the stimulation it needs. I discovered this, by mistake, after a few ultrasounds, because I still occasionally suffer from ovarian cysts. Every time I went in for the sonogram, I had to "go" to the bathroom!
