Colon issues

Hi ladies,

Has anybody been able to feel their colon movements more after a hyst?! I am very thin and am able to feel what seem to be large air pockets moving through when I place my hand on my abdomen. Weird, huh?

Also, anyone have soreness around the incision at nine months post op?

Blessings to all,

Hi there!

Although I'm not very thin (oh the good old days) I sure know my colon is there since my tah. I had ibs before, but now I really notice what's going on in there! I was just now thinking about whether or not I should schedule a colonoscopy (had one in '93) because I'm super paranoid about colon cancer. I lost 3 grandparents to it and w/my tummy issues, I wonder if it's a good idea to have it done every few years.

When I press (ever so lightly) on my abdomen I can feel stuff moving around...especially after I eat. If you ibs there is treatment for it.

As for the incision...after 2 years sometimes mine still gets twinges of pain after heavy activity. But if you're worried, go see your doc!

Take care!

Same here - I'm not thin anymore either (sigh), but I sure can tell a big difference since the surgery. My GI doctor said it is gas pockets caused by my adhesions. All I know is, you can hear my tummy in the next room. It is constantly gurgling and rumbling. I call it my "rumbly in the tumbly" as Pooh would say. It even makes noise when I go from a sitting to a standing position. I can also pull in my stomach and it makes horrible noises as many times as I do it. It sounds like a sewer line gone mad!

Seriously, I hate it and it really causes me great distress. I had a colonoscopy last December and all was fine - just lots of adhesions. I am hoping to get the GI doctor to give me something for it when I see him in September. So far, nothing I do is working.

Wow, sorry it's causing you so many problems. I don't take anything for it 'cause it hasn't bothered me. It's just weird. I hope you get some relief soon!

I get the same kind of thing, I had my TVH last Sep. & my IBS has been really kicking up. My name for it is the "Tummy rumbles" - very loud !! I have never been able to feel anything untill recently, only thing I can figure is its a lot of gas in there. I had a barium enema done recently which showed diverticulosis, which I already know I have.
You could give your dr. a call if it concerns you. I hope you find something that helps with it. 's
