I had part of my colon removed in March. The past few weeks I have been having pain at the spot where it was reattached. I have been taking Motrin and it does go away. My bowel movements are regular again with no blood. I thought at first it was diet-so I backed down to a soft diet-still pain. I thought it was because I was doing to much so I backed down and still pain. My husband has a co-worker who had colon surgery that told him that it is because that area is healing causing adhesions and that it will come and go for the next 6 months. I am not sure if I should call the doctor's office to get something more stronger. The pain is worse then it was in the hospital. It this normal that I should just work through and be patient? Or should I call the doctor?
