I had my Colectomy 6 days ago. I have had bad gas pains but have dealt. I do not take pain pills except before bed. Earlier I got up to walk and it felt like a knot of pain above belly button and radiated to my back. Worst pain of my life! I was ok sitting and bending over but when I laid down or stand up I couldn't take it,I was in tears. I took pain medicine and 45 minutes later starting to feel better, not a 10 anymore more like a 7 if I don't move. Oncall doctor said to wait it out or go to ER really trying to not go back to the hospital. Why is the pain in my middle back mostly? No nausea or fever. Just tingling hands. Anyone experience this,what could it be if pain meds take it away?This is not normal pain!
