Kay - I finally saw your posts and responded on the IBS forum. Sorry you're going thru so much.
I had some weird sensations in the rectal area but they were during my ostomy phase, pain when walking but relieved when I would sit down or apply pressure on the rectalarea.
In a different way, I have gotten into a very painful phase where I swear my colon walls are swollen or very irritated but have a stronge urge to go, and I have stabbing pains when this happens, it's almost as if they didn't make my new sigmoid area correctly but I find that if I walk, drink water and/or hot tea, encouraging bm's, this odd phase is over in mere hours. I am not even sure if this is what you're experiencing or not but when it hits, wow, it's painful. It's been a long time (over a year) since I've had it and even then it wasn't even monthly when it would strike. One of the doctors in my care told me there are lots of nerve endings in the colon and they can get very irritated. I never seem to struggle with C but my personal painful stage is nearly like C.
Good luck at the surgeon's appt.
