Had lower colon resection and still have pain when "going" after 8 months. Fiber has helped to "soften" stool and the pain. Pain ok after 8 months?!

In brief: Possibly

If the pain is chronic in nature - no new changes in past few days - and you do not have fever or decreased bowel movements acutely over past few days, this is probably a chronic issue you need to discuss with your family doc or surgeon.
If there has been a recent increase in pain or decrease in bowel movements accompanied by nausea/vomiting, you need emergent medical evaluation.
