Curious about new potty habits...

Have had no real complications since my TAH almost a year ago, BUT.........have noticed a major, permanent change in my bowel habits. Wondering if this is common with others after removal of large/multiple fibroids:

Of course, prior to my surgery, had noticed a gradual problem in this squeezing toothpaste from a tube. Since my surgery, have enormous and unbroken deposits (similar to a big, big snake). Normally, I would never discuss such a private matter, but am concerned with the effort it takes to "birth" these daily things..............I almost pass out at times. Am not constipated....texture is not hard. Eat lots of fruits and veggies, as before.

Before I thoroughly embarass myself by bringing this up at my annual exam, was just wondering if this is being experienced by anyone else.

Curious about new potty habits...

Hi Fibroid woman,
Well I can tell you from NOT having huge fibroids, I only had a wee baby one, that I am experiencing a...ahem...larger output than normal too. When I was on the fiber tabs, my DS used to tease me about giving birth to a cat!! (Yes, he took really good care of me!! lol) They were not just long, but HUGE around, and some days, I wasnt sure what was gonna give first!! Now I just notice more stool than there was before....Cant help on the length part of it!!

Now Im wonderin where all the rest of it was pre surgery?!?!
