See your doctor: Most likely your pain is related to your previous extensive surgery, so you should see an experienced surgeon or GI doc familiar with this procedure to evaluate. Many hospitals/doctors have a program to help people withour insurance so don't let that put you off from seeking the help you need.

Hard to tell...: Without an examination. Pouchituts is a painful inflammation of the rectal pouch treated with antibiotics. Urinary bladder infection can cause pelvic discomfort. Adhesion form after all surgery & do not generally cause pain unless there is a bowel obstruction with vomiting & no bowel function. Needs a physician examination.
