Hello mate,
Just a suggestion, i had surgery a few years ago, and have too had nothing but problems, and they found out this was Adhesions, maybe something you should look into, i had mine removed, its just Lumps behind your Scar tissue, and it can stick to your Bowel, and cause problems..

Regards
