    Hi:  The Aftercare Advice I've been given says that if you experience any severe pain you should get it checked out.

    I am in discomfort after having 10 removed yesterday, but I think discomfort and tenderness is to be expected.   Depends on how bad the pain is really.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Hi.  I don't know your name but mine is Jane. Greetings! Firstly, don't be worried.  You have had invasive surgery and you WILL be in some discomfort.  If your hopsital is like mine, they should ring you in a couple of days and ask you how you are feeling. You may also have some blood loss.  Don't be concerned unless it is copious  - ie about a cup full.  I unfortunatey have become quite an expert on this!  So far I have had four but so far nothing untoward has been found,  They are just extremely merticulous. Let me know how you are feeling by next week.  My last one was Tuesday and I have had very few symptoms apart from a little blood loss.  Believe me, you will be fine. Love and hugs

      The hospital did ring me Thursday I told them I had a bit of pain but the nurse thought it could be wind from the procedure because as you know they pump air into your bowel, thank you everybody who has replied to my post. Susan
