How did you know you had an abscess? What were the signs?

It was 5 days after my surgery. I was really sick. I was in so much pain, that I literally couldn't move. I was taking pain meds, and they would not even touch the pain. My temperature was climbing. It was 102 by the time the ambulance got there.
PAIN PAIN PAIN! Worse than labor. the WORST.

my abscesses were internal. a few behind my liver, and a few near my pelvic regon.

-diagnosed with severe pancolitis u/c 2002 had total colectomy 12/19/08; emergency surgery due to abscess-had to redo ileostomy and switch to left side 12/25/08; 2/15/09 found blood clot in superior mesenteric vein (prob. from inf. and surgery inflammation)
i only take vitamins now, when I WANT to. :)
(temporary ileostomy....maybe)
