Larry has terrible abdominal cramping, with or without eating or drinking. Across lower abdomen. It does worsen with eating or drinking. How long does it last? Are there any remedies?

I had an intense sharp pain in my lower right abdomen staring the day after my esophagectomy.  I had a j-tube placed during my surgery and had the pain until the feeding tube was removed five weeks later.

My husband has the same thing.  It lasts 12-18 hours, but on occasion will stretch to 24 hours.  He was also told it was related to bowel movement.  This issue was resolved but the abdominal pain continued.
