i am in remission now too (woohoo!!!) and i still get cramping when i have to go. its like my colon is saying "whoa, what is that big thing, havent seen those in over a year"... i think our colons are just not used to proper poo's. and it is still tender in there.
once i go, the cramping is over for the day, unless i have gas of course.
and i do get right side pain sometimes and i have no idea what it is.
could be ovaries? dont know for sure...
just so used to pain, that i just wave it off as more of what i've been going thru for a year.
maybe i should get it checked?
