1173929 tn?1263534416 He can't explain it because he doesn't know, or care enough to find out. You're absolutely right in not accepting this excuse. Get a second opinion and not one from anyone associated with him. My son had stomach pain after removal of his colon, his doctor told him it was scar tissue and to live with it. He insisted something was wrong and opted for exploratory surgery, he had a large tumor attached to his aorta. and we lost him at 31.
332074 tn?1229560525 I was also diagnoised with a spastic colon when 19 and I have been struggling with my colon issues since my surgery. I was taking Lialdia for my colon and then my insurance changed and I can not afford to get it anymore. So now my colon is hurting and I am having what feels like severe gas pain in the upper right quadran of my stomach under my right breast. Could all of these issues be related to my gallbladder removal? Thanks for your help!
Avatar f tn Hi. I had 7 inches of my sigmoid colon removed last January. I can tell you that I experienced pain for quite awhile. I would say that I am starting to feel "normal" now. From reading through various posts here, I feel that it is all different for everyone. You can check out another thread called "problems after colon resection" and you will find others who have had the same surgery. I did not experience nausea but kept complaining about pain.
Avatar m tn It was pretty bad but considering i have two children already i was om with this. The pain went away after tht but now im having more pain than ive had before bc even tho they remove the spots it does come back and fairly quick. I suggest talk to ur dr amd make sure everything is ok and there is no infection and go from there...
Avatar n tn I had surgery in August of 2007. I went back to work 6 weeks after surgery. I do housekeeping/janitorial work,believe me, it isn't because I "baby" the surgery. I guess maybe the bowels need to stretch? I really don't know and I hope the pain goes away eventually!

I had a colonoscopy and was told that the surgeon did not remove enough of my colon I was diagnosed with diverticulitis two years ago.

Avatar f tn Hello, my grandfather is 55 years old and had always been in great health until polyps were found in his colon. He got them removed then shortly after was told he needed surgery. He elected to do the labroscopic (spelling sorry) surgery as opposed to the open surgery. He did not recieve a single CT scan before the surgery so during the surgery the doctor slipped and ended up cutting him open and taking out 60% of his colon. Home from the hospital for 9 days he called the dr.
Avatar f tn Hi, I had a hysterectomy 3- 4 years ago and my question is this I had several surgeries really. For endo, cysts and masses and of course adhessions. My questions is I am having pain in my lower stomach, back and down my legs, but what is weird I had my left ovary taken out and I still have the right one. And the sharp pains are on the left side mostly so there is no ovary there..... And the night sweat are a night mare.... So what could be up with this....
Avatar n tn I must agree with Jaybay about the pain meds. How long ago did you have it removed? I only used pain meds for a couple of days after my surgery. Many people suffer with what is called the "dumping syndrome" while their body adjusts to the constant flow of bile into the small intestine. Your doctor would have sent you home with a low fat diet instructions. The low fat diet caused more problems for me and I did much better on a regular diet.
Avatar n tn NOW MY BOWEL MOVEMENTS ARE JUST NEVR THE SAME AS BEFORE SURGERY AND I HAVE NO CONTROL WHEN THE NECESSITY ARISES. I STILL FEEL PAIN AT THE JUNCTURE OF JOINED ENDS OF THE COLON AFTER SURGERY AND AM A MISERABLE HUMAN BEING FOR ALL THEY DID. I FEEL IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER TO LET ME PASS AWAY.EVEN NOW I AM FATIGUED WITH SLIGHTEST WORK AND CANNOT TAKE THE ENTIRE DAY AT ONE GO.

Avatar m tn The other causes could be gastritis, peptic ulcer disease and GERD. Disorders of the spleen and colon could also cause pain. Kidney disorders too produce colicky and sharp pain. Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this pain. You will need to consult your doctor for proper evaluation of pain and therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn ve been given the no-go on surgery is that the cyst is located very close my colon that I just had surgery on. Their not to worried it will twist because the colon is kind of keeping it stable,but I am worried it will twist or burst then I'll go from a fairly simple procedure to a major ordeal. I always seem to be that tiny percent that weird things happen to.I go back for another ultrasound this Wednesday,if it's bigger again in a weeks time I wouldn't be surprised.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have similar issues. I had colon surgery to fix my internal rectal prolapse and was doing fine until a few weeks ago where my pain has come back in much more severe form. I went to my internist and am seeing a surgeon - could be adhesions/scar tissue from the surgery or a reoccurence of the original problem that was "fixed" by the surgery. I would tell her to go back to her doctor (GI or internist).
Avatar m tn I had a bowel resection, also my Ileum was removed as well as a small portion of my colon this was back in July of 2009 due to Crohn's I am now experiencing pain where I had the surgery it seems to happen around the time I am going to have a bowel movement. Has anyone had this type of surgery if so are you experiencing this type of problem so long after surgery. I did read a post where someone had surgery similar to mine and was told by there Dr.
Avatar m tn My mother had surgery March 9, 2016, on her colon for diverticulosis and they removed a piece of her colon. Stitched her back together and she ended up leaking from where they pieced her colon back together, which led to an infection in her stomach, They took her back in for emergency surgery on March 12, 2016 and gave her a colostomy bag.As told to me by the doctors, she wasn't breathing very well so they stuck on her a ventilator. They kept her on sedation meds in the SICU called propofol.

945921 tn?1330962317 If antibiotics do not work then sometimes all or part of the colon is removed (= a total or partial colectomy). After surgery, pain is managed epidurally but you should be almost pain free after ~5 days. If you still have pain then do see the surgeon again in case the cause is based on the original surgery. Your surgeon is responsible for your recovery after treatment/surgery.
Avatar f tn I am 44 years, I had Colon Surgery on 5/3/10 because of an obstruction in my lower colon due to a case of endometriosis on my uterus which caused a fibroid to fall on my rectum wall. Doctor said it was a rare case. I have the obstruction cut out and my colon reattached. I stayed in the hospital for one week and left because I was having normal bowel movements.
Avatar m tn For the 3rd time Ill ask this question. The summer of 09 I had surgery for colon cancer at Johns Hopkins. For the last 9 months Ive had pain in the right lower side of my abdomen. Walking, sitting,standing. Tends to be worse when I cross my legs..
Avatar f tn I am a 36 year old female who recently had a sigmoid colectomy. It was suppose to be laparoscopic, unfortunately during surgery the surgeon decided to open me up from belly button down. Thank God I haven't had any problems with the incision, with exception of a little tenderness every once in a while. I am now 6 weeks post op. After week three my Dr. placed me on a high fiber diet, which made my bowels move 5 - 7 times a day.
Avatar n tn It seems that my colon is sluggish since the surgery and it fills up and the food expands in my colon. I think after surgery the parts that are connected become narrowed so the waste is unable to pass. Try to pick a day during the week to take miralax. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn For about 3-4 days afterwards the pain was controlled epidurally but thereafter the pain subsided and I was pain-free after ~5 days when the epidural needle was withdrawn..
Avatar f tn My Dad was diagnosed with Colon Cancer/Stage II at age 81. After a colonoscopy, they found a large cancerous mass that needed removed asap, so he was in surgery two weeks later. It will be one year, June 18th since his surgery and considering some post surgery complications due to blood loss and other health issues, I can only say that he's had a long recovery compared to most others.
329994 tn?1301663248 It is over two months since your surgery and I would have thought that you ought to be pain-free by now. I was pretty much pain free after the wound had healed (2-3 weeks) and up to then, I recall that any pain was more associated with the wound rather than with "anger" from my remaining intestines. I suggest you ask your surgeon to differentiate between pain associated with the wound and pain associated with your intestines and treat accordingly.
