    you have had major surgery, it does take time to settle down, some people heal quickly some dont, take it easy no lifting,etc, it can take over a year for your insides to settle down, some a few weeks, ;;;

      Thanks terry just thought it was strange i woke up with this pain today. Im also dehydrated i drink about 3 to 4 bottles of water a day i used to hate water and still so tired in lifeless. Funny how they never pre warn you it would be like this the doctors let you think after a week youll be like brand new.

    Maybe that feeling is due to internal soluble stitches dissolving? Feels like tiny pin pricks. If it continues or worsens speak to your GP or practice nurse.
