Sigmoid resection pain question.

I had my some of my sigmoid colon removed 5 weeks ago. I have a great deal of discomfort in the area of the resection, internally, near my lower left pelvic bone- I believe near my bowel. My incisions are all healed, but I hurt so much inside.
I was wondering how long most of you hurt inside where the re-attached the "2 pieces" -sorry to be so graphic-rectum? (I may be using the wrong terms, please forgive) Is it normal to still have significant internal pain after 5 weeks? If so, how many months did you still have pain? I really appreciate any responses.

Re: Sigmoid resection pain question.

I too had a resection due to diverticulitis. I too had a pain in the same area, deep, inner, had to be at the actual resection. I experienced very odd pain, almost electrical impulses and it sounds strange, but it was like nerves reactivating. It almost felt like a hot burn. It simmered down, after a few months, but for up to a year I would have periodic sparklers. I hope that helps. Be sweet to yourself. It's a tough surgery.
