5 years ago (2012) I got a J-Pouch, 3 years ago had Hernias repaired with 8"x10" mesh (not the mesh that people have sued over assured by my doctor.  He used a different product he trust.)

This past week I woke up with real sore abdominal pains as if I had overworked my abs or pulled something.   The pain is from my belly button and up.

Bathroom habits have not changed.

So I have no Idea as to whats going on.  I am not a hypochondriac  but I am concerned as to whats going on.

Thanks for any help!!

If it isn't better I suggest you see your GI as it might not be j-pouch related. I had hernia surgery too and have abdominal pain that is lower than you describe.

If it is continuing, yes you need to see your doctor. This may or may not be related to your surgery. So many things this could be.

Not sure what was the cause but I ate Activia and other yogurts for 3 days and the pain stopped.

I will be seeing the doctor next week for a regular check up.

 

Thanks

Well, anything that is fixed by yogurt can't be very significant! Glad you are on the mend. Maybe just some minor bacterial overgrowth.
