A sub-partial hysterectomy involve the removal of a woman's fallopian tubes, the upper 2/3 of the uterus and the preservation of the cervix.

Is this what was performed during your surgery? I don't know if your increased appetite and sleep issue are related to the surgery.

Is there anything else going on in your life that could be impacting your sleep or causing you to eat more? For example, any new stress factors, concerns or issues? That may be the source of your problems.

i my sub-total hysterectomy involved the removal of the body part of my uterus.yes my cervix was preserved.and my ovaries as well even if a gulf sized tumor was removed on my right ovary.as a result of my increased appetite and diminished sleep habits might not be attributed as a result of my surgery. these conditions have occured instantaneously after my surgery.there are no other factors in my life @ this point that may cause these situations to happen.
