Adhesions : Please see a second opinion consult with general surgery. Studies show that adhesions between intestines sometimes happen after surgery and can cause abdominal pain. You need a full history and physical with vital signs and an exam to rule out several possible problems and probably some imaging to non invasively look at your problem.
