I had a small bowel resection (ileocecectomy) on 7/30. It's nearly 5 weeks post-op and I'm still experiencing quite a bit of tenderness in my entire right-abdominal area. Is this normal? How long does it usually take for the tenderness to go away? (I don't see my surgeon or GI doc for another 2 weeks.)
