Okay.. had a colostomy for diverticulitis with perforated colon, and C-Diff. Reversal was successful 10 months ago. Now experiencing a feeling of unbearable fullness immediately below the sternum after eating. It hurts to touch, frequent (6-8/day) tho not loose bms, rectal soreness with perhaps a little discharge(not stool or blood, just sticky. sorry for being graphic) occasional sharp pain in right lower abdomen, and a combination feeling of gnawing (lile hunger) and being bruised on the stomach. Feels like I was punched repeatedly. Currently on Asacol and it really seems to help, but wonder if I should pursue the cause. Hate to have another winter like last. Think I'll seek out a gastroenterologist, but wondered if anyone was familiar with the symptoms. Thanks
