I am going for a CatScan tomorrow to see what is going on, but I seem to have some on and off pain/discomfort in my abdomen with no visible bulging, 10 weeks past my surgery. Please shoot me! I'm so sick of this. Sorry, got off the subject, but wondering if anybody had these symptoms after their resection. I was also thinking I could have strained a muscle.

I have a small hernia at the very last pelvic staple site just above the pelvic bone. Mine does protrude somewhat, but is not particularly bothersome. Sometimes it stings a little. Maybe your body trying to adjust to certain foods again. This can take months. You've had a major surgery remember. Hope you feel better soon.
