If it was MONTHS after the 2nd surgery, I would be more worried. But you are just a month from the 2nd surgery, and I think you are probably not yet fully healed. If it has you up at night worrying, go ahead and call your oncology nurse and run it by her. ((((BIG HUG.))))

If you have stomach pains and fever over 100.1 then you need to call the doctor cuz it could be anything such as abscess or stomach infection. You will never know... I've had stomach infection from one of the chemo drug that causes bad side effect. I'm not sure if you are taking chemotherapy? Ask your doctor to take ct scan for your stomach not pelvis to check and see if they can find anything wrong with it plus blood works can tell sometimes.
Hope your stomach pain will go away. Reddie
