Thank you for your query.

Da vinci hysterectomy is a less invasive procedure than others. It has minimum risk & less side effect.

May be the bowel problem is due to side of the drug you have taken or taking after operation.
Sometimes physical inactivity after operation create this problem.

Take plenty of fluid & continue your fiber intake. Try to keep yourself active.
If symptoms trouble you, then you can take ispagula husk for a short period.

I hope I have help your query. Please write if you have another query.

Take care.
