Severe pain and cramps below belly button, bad diarrhea and bloody stool. Had my appendix removed and colonoscopy but no results. Become very gassy.

Com and a good probiotic.

I had my appendix surgery 3 years back since then I have similar pain in my operated area and vomiting. Appendiceal opening still seen in colonscopy?
Hernia/scar/adhesion: Pain at scar site may be from a small incisional hernia, scar itself, lacerated nerve etc. Appendiceal opening can still be seen if a small stump was left behind at time of operation. Vomiting is most likely not related to that operation unless you have adhesions causing obstruction. CT scan may provide further information.See 1 more doctor answer
Does "lesion near cecum " found from colonscopy suggest appendix protruding mass? Having CT scan. GI doc says it's most likely benign.
R.O malignancy: A number of different lesions develop within the bowel including the region of the cecum in close proximity to the appendix. When lesion "non defined" seen both on colonoscopy and by CT scan, a histologic dx needed. Lesion may range from adenoma, to malignant polyp to adenocarcinoma to GIST to carcinoid and probably requires resection even if AP based, Bowel lesions rarely left untreated.See 3 more doctor answers
