Colon Pain and Spasms after Hyst.

I am new to this site. I had a partial lapriscopic Hysterectomy on July 22nd after having complications from my hydrotherapy ablation. I was on pain medicine for longer that I had planned. I started having intense BMs 4 days post op and the pain increased and soon I was in a fetal position, dry heaving and could not stand up straight. The BMs became watery and painful. I went to the doctor and C-Diff came back negative. A day later I was at the ER severly dehydrated and in a tremendous amount of pain. The pain shot only helped for about an hour. The ER doctor said that just because the test was negative did not mean I did not have C-diff. She said I had every symptom of C-diff and it seemed to be a severe case. The BMs have gotten better since I have been on Flagyl but my pain and nausea is not decreasing. I feel like my colon is having electric shots and I still am not able to be on my feet for a long period of time. Has anyone else had this problem? I just want to return to normal. Any help is welcome and greatly appreciated.

Re: Colon Pain and Spasms after Partial Hyst.

I am sorry you are having all this pain and problems. I have not had this, but maybe someone will come along who does. You can always try doing a Search and see if others have had this. I hope you find relief and healing soon.

Sending and prayers your way.

Re: Colon Pain and Spasms after Hyst.

Thank you so much! The pain is subsiding and the BMs have gotten better with the Flagyl. I am waiting on the nausea to subside. Hoping it is from the antibiotic. You were so sweet to respond. HUGS!!!!!!

Re: Colon Pain and Spasms after Hyst.

I have had digestive isdies, too. A few days after surgery (abdominal hyst), I had 'normal' BMs, but after that was severly constipated for 3 days. Nothing helped until Milk of Magnesia. Now, two weeks post-op, the diarrhea won't stop. Even Immodium doesn't help. I had a contrast CT today and am hoping that this will give the doctor an idea of what's happening, especially since I'm still experiencing severe pain in my left ovary.

Re: Colon Pain and Spasms after Hyst.

Mine did the same thing. I did not go and then I could not stop. Be careful. I was so dehydrated by the time i got to the ER. My BMs have lessened being on Flagyl for 5 days now but I am still exhausted. My pain was in the right side and that is where my Colon was inflamed. The pain finally decreased yesterday. I am going to see a GI next week and I hope I don't have to do another round of Flagyl. I hope you find out answers soon. It is no fun to not know what is going on. . Let me know How the scan turns out. Prayers your way.
