Question: I recently had a hysterectomy and I am noticing that I am going to the bathroom more frequently and can’t hold it as long as I used to. My doctor suggested physical therapy. What would physical therapy do?

Answer: Sometimes after abdominal or pelvic surgery the function
of the bowel and/or bladder is affected. A physical therapist
can teach you exercises to strengthen your pelvic muscles
and teach you activities to help you heal from the surgery and
get back to normal bowel and bladder health. For additional
information, contact Marcy at STARS at 288-4670.
