Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
The most important thing is that there is no recurence of tumor.
Certain degree of such difficulties are expected after bladder surgeries(even up to 2 years postoperatively) and also uroinfection are more likely to happen in your case. So do frequent urine analysis and treat uroinfection if there is one.
Your medical history indicate that there were several procedures that may cause abdominal adhesions and it can lead to pelvic pressure and bowel pressure so it can cause similar pain that you have.
At this point you should drink plenty of fluids, cranberry teas and do urine analysis.
If pain persist you should do ct pelvic scan to see what happens in your pelvic organs,kidneys and ureter.
Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
