I had a laparoscopic colectomy (18 inches) 4 weeks ago, and have been back to work for 2 weeks. All was going well...no pain, except for minor incisional belly pain. Within the past 3 days, I started getting these stabbing pains in my abdomen...just for a second each time. I read on the internet that as the anastomosis heals, it constricts, and can cause pain as stool passes it. Perhaps I added fiber to my diet too quickly? My surgeon said "no diet restrictions", and should be able to eat whatever I want. Anyone else experienced this?
