I just had a hysterectomy in Nov 2018. I kept my ovaries. I was not flaring when I had surgery, nor did I technically “flare” afterwards, but I will warn you that my gut was pretty much a mess for the first 2 months post surgery. The extra space for your intestines, plus your guts laying around all that healing tissue caused a lot of discomfort, diarrhea, and General IBS type stuff. This was a common occurrence on the hystersisters message board that I followed. It did pass. My advice is to also go easy on the pain meds and stool softeners they provide after surgery. My UC was diagnosed at a mild stage and I feel like I’ve been in “remission” since, although I have battled a whole lot of IBS misery so I can’t say the hysterectomy fixed my gut, but the surgery did not technically flare my UC. May be different if you have ovaries removed.
Diagnosed Sept 2017, mild UC activity
Current meds: 3xLialda daily
