So I am having surgery on June 11th to take out my colon and rectum. I noticed since Saturday the pain has gotten 10x worse. I have disease in my left decending colon and the rectum.
It almost feels like something is stuck there or something. I am almost afraid to eat anything cause I know it's going to hurt.  Right now I am on 60mg of prednisone and have been since July of 09'. I have also been bleeding since then its gotten a lot worse the last few days.
Its hard to deal with cause I am at work and there are no bathrooms and what makes it worse is when I bend over or try to lift something heavy, which I do all day.
I took pain medicine and that didn't even help. Also I am getting a lot of hiccups and I had a fever yesterday.
Anyone know what this could be?

Don't know, but think it's time to call the doctor.

Sorry to hear about the amount of discomfort your are in. Are you having D? Maybe you should stick to a soft diet for a few days and let things settle down. Is there any way you can avoid the heavy lifting? Where exactly is the pain and is it steady?

Yeah I am having D. Not as much is coming out and I have to push hard. I can't really avoid the heavy lifting, unless I take off work. I told my boss I would work until the 9th, but I don't think I will make it that long. I am going to try and finish out the week. I become hot, tingly and numb when the pain gets bad.
The pain is mostly on the left side and feels like a bad cramp, kinda like if you eat or drink and go running.
I would go to the doctor, but there is nothing they can really do for me besides admit me and possibly have emergency surgery which I don't want because everything is already planned out for the 11th.
