I am ten days post-op with stage 1 and stage 2 of the j-pouch surgery done together and my symptoms are nearly identical. I don't have any burning while peeing but a slight pain in the abdomen when I am about done urinating. It's like the bladder is getting squeezed and putting pressure on the incisions. I also have lower back pain on the right side. I am occasionally running low grade fever (mostly 99 to 99.5). I wonder if I just need to be more patient and wait for these things to get better or see the surgeon.
First stage of the j-pouch surgery - 01/18/13
