Hello all,
 
My ostomy reversal was June 20th 2007.  I am still having D (I had C before) but I know this is normal being that they removed all in all half of my colon.  I am however still tender more so right before a BM, as well as following a BM or if any substantial pressure is placed on my L side where I do have colon left.
 
Is this normal?  My pcp put me on the medrol dose pack due to my severe arthritis and need for relief for my nana's wake and funeral (yesterday and today).  The joints are a great deal better however this abd pain has not gotten any better.  Any thoughts to what this may be caused by?

I have founbd the pain hurts while breathing deep as well as moving aound.  The area doesnt hurt all the time though it sounds like a muscle in some respects but the pain will subside then return later.

Could it possibly be adhesion pain? I have had three major abdominal surgeries and I get tender in one area frequently. My last surgery was in 2005 and I still have a tender gut alot of the time. When he opened me up for my last surgery he had to spend the first 2 hours just cleaning up the adhesions. Just a thought since you had quite a bit of surgeries this year.

This pain is still ingering I wonder if it is a pulled muscle but then why doesnt it hurt all the time when a pulled muscle would typically hurt. Could it be an adhesion? I know I had lots of them when they went in to reverse my ostomy and that was 2 months ago, I didnt even know I had them until after surgery. I am still passing stool (loose and D) 1-5 times a day usually about 3 times. I am on pred for a few days for my joints and that started working a few hours after taking the first few pills. If it were inflamation the pain wouldnt be there I wouldnt think. I am hearing lots of bowel sounds and feeling gas go through the area, most of the sounds are also occuring in the same area as well.

I may move my GI visit up from Oct 4th to sometime in late Sept he mentioned late sep to early oct. Now that I am layed off I have all the time in the world right now (just no car husbands front wheel seized up he has been using my car since february when I had my 1st Sx).
