I would suspect your colon surgeon would have definately noticed if you had any evidence if endometriosis during your surgery for resection of your colon. Endometriosis is visible to any surgeon. I would not place endometriosis at the top of your concern list.
Having an ileostomy myself and having had 3 open abdominal surgeries I can speak to the many and varied ways that adhesions/scar tissue present themselves. I would put at the top of the list of possible contributing factors causing your varied pain adhesions/scar tissue. Adhesions/scar tissue that is tethering itself to your abdominal and pelvic wall - if not also your small intestine and pelvic organs.
Adhesions can be wispy like a spiders' web or dense like a thick rubber band.
Try doing some gentle yoga postures and yoga stretches to begin to mobilize the soft tissue and adhesions of your abdomen. You can expect to feel stiffness and resistance. You may even feel an adhesion "pop" and release its anchored holding. All are normal and beneficial.
You can also look into massage. Deep tissue massage is immensely helpful in releasing and mobilizing adhesions.
Adhesions do cause secondary problems after one has healed from the initial surgery. Abdominal surgery, in particular, is prone to scar tissue development. I have had two small bowel obstructions due to adhesions. Adhesions are the gift that keeps on giving.
Look into some beginning yoga poses and deep tissue massage. I think you will find some relief.
