You could try to drink peppermint tea and walk as much as possibe. Small quantities of prune juice will help get your bowels moving. It will get better with time. Wishing you well with your recovery x


Best of luck with your recovery. Peppermint tea or capsules can help and walking around the house can help

Take a look at hysterectomy associations website as v useful.


Peppermint tea is good, walking around and massaging the stomach (if you can) to get the trapped wind out.
