Need for workup.: It sounds like you had this pain prior to your colectomy so its unlikely due to the surgery. It is very hard to say what is the cause of your pain without more information. You will likely need further medical workup.

See your surgeon: Depending on how long ago your surgery was done, persistent pain can be normal (in the first couple weeks) or unexpected. Adhesions (think scars sticking/healing things together) can be painful but are more common with open surgery. Many other causes exist. If you have tenderness or fever, vomiting or dehydration, go to the surgeon now. Otherwise, get a visit scheduled soon to get an exam.

See surgeon: It is difficult to tell exactly. You need to be examined and maybe tests ordered to find out exactly what it is.
