For those who have had a hysterectomy or other abdominal surgery: did you have any new problems crop up shortly afterward? During my post-op visit, my doctor found a bit of blood during the rectal exam and wants me to get a precautionary colonoscopy. I'm sure many things could cause this, such as the constipation that troubled me for weeks after my surgery, but I'm understandably concerned about colon cancer and will probably be a bit anxious until I have the test and learn the results. I just wanted to know whether this might be be a fairly typical post-surgery problem and if anyone here has experienced it. Thanks!
