In brief: Worry, no; Care, yes

If you've had a hysterectomy that somehow resulted in rectal prolapse, of course this is something worth concern and discussing with your physician.
This is not a common complication, but your doctor needs to know so that something can be done.

In brief: No

Anal sex, constipation and genes are factors, but hysterectomy is not.
