Redundant colon causing pelvic pain?
I'm a 47 yr. old female and have had no health problems. About two years ago, I started having lots of discomfort in my lower right side---heaviness, fullness, aching and tenderness with ocassional low-grade fever----along with lower right back pain. I've had multiple ultrasounds and a CT scan that ruled out a host of possibilities. My blood work has been normal. My gynecologist (and pelvic pain specialist) sent me to a physical therapist who worked internally and found scar tissue and inflammed muscles in that area. However, after almost a year of treatment, my pain did not improve. The therapist felt convinced that there was an underlying reason for the constant irritation of these muscles and she sent me back to my physician. This past week I had a colonoscopy to explore possible causes of this chronic pain. Everything was normal---except I have a redundant colon. Could this be the source of my chronic discomfort? If so, why would symptoms be appearing only now? The colonoscopy revealed no other problems.

Many thanks,

Charlotte

I have had some hernia issues from prior surgeries.  But the cause of my pain may be redundant colon.  I may seek surgery.
