Joann,I had part of my colon removed due to diverticulitis about a month ago. I had a lot of adhesions also from previous hysterectomy. I am healing slowly, but my biggest complaint is cramping during urination. Is anyone else experiencing same?
I had some pain during the first eight weeks after my colon resection surgery in the bladder area, mainly at the anastomosis site where the remaining colon was joined at the rectum. It can take several weeks for that area to heal, so, hopefully, your cramping will gradually go away. The best thing I wish I would have done more of was to drink lots of water each day, to soften the stools, which would have helped to reduce the pain in that area.
