Back pain after partial colectomy
Wife has lower back pain after parcial collectomy (polips removed). is this normal? pain started 2 to 3 days after surgery, and extends horizontally from left side of the back through to the right side, crossing the spine. Synap Forte does not relieve the pain. Pain especially intense during urinating. when sitting or sleeping, no pain is felt.

Hallo Joost
If she had a catheter in during the operation, she may now have a urinary tract infection. Rather let her doctor have a look and test urine as well.
