    Cramping after a Colectomy

    My son (now 15) was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2010. After 2 years of taking various meds (which did not work), he had a colectomy (on Aug 1). 18 days post-op, my son continues to have cramping daily. Some days are worse than others. His GI did a endoscopy on him 4 days ago to make sure that his small intestine was fine; he found nothing wrong. He's been trying to stick to a low residue diet as well as avoiding gas causing foods (although it's been a challenge finding foods he CAN eat). Can anyone offer advice?
