Bowel problems

I am a 52 yo old that had a vaginal hysterecomy (total) in Dec. 2005.  I have had issues with constipation (feeling like I never completely empty my bowels, etc. ever since.  I have to constantly put effort into keeping myself somewhat able to go.  Laxatives, prune juice, fiber, etc.  its a never ending battle.  Is this a common side effect?  What can I do to become normal again.

I would mention it to your dr. It is possible to get a rectocele (herniation through the bowel) making it difficult to go. Or even a nerve problem from the surgery. Really there are many reasons. A check-up would be quite helpful to you. Best wishes.

I would see a Dr. asap and mention the herniation, I just had a family member with the same thing and she waited till it was severe and almost died, not trying to scare anyone but if she would have known what to say to her Dr. he might have spotted her hernia sooner, she is doing fine now she had the hernia removed recovered well. Hope that helped somewhat!
