Specializes in Pediatrics

You are young and problematic adhesions which cause pain are not typical after this operation. However, the differential diagnosis for abdominal pain with or without a prior surgery is extensive. The best way to sort this out is to see your regular physician for an evaluation. She will determine whether you need to involve the Surgeon who did your procedure. Best of luck! Don't delay!
