Done abdominal surgery. Back pain, pelvic pain. Taking painkillers. Any thoughts on treatment?

Hello im am 32 yrs old and have had multiple abdominal surgeries recently resulting in a total colectomy and internal pouch formed. Following my surgery I had a pretty serious spinal infection which was treated with iv antibiotics. Since this trestment the infection was cleared however for the past 6 months I had been really suffering with back and pelvis pain. I have attended physio but have not found it very beneficial. I have been refered to an osteopath and am taking many pain killers and anti inflammatory drigs. Do you have any thoughts as to treatment to help as I am going out of my mind now with this pain and restrictions with movement. Could the infection have come bsck after 6 months? Thsnk you

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
You had multiple surgeries on abdomen. now you are getting Pelvic pain and back pain. Not getting relief with any medicines. It may be of lumbar spondylosis, or arthritis of the hip.
i advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to take M.R.I.besides other routine tests for confirmation.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
