    What causes lower back pain and weight gain after colon surgery?

Posted on Tue, 1 Aug 2017 in Cancer
Question: I was diagnosed with tumors on my omentum the largest of which is 3cm what could be the possible causes. I have crohns disease and all but 6 inches of my colon has been removed. In may I started having lower back pain and losing weight. I thought it was a crohns flare up but it did not go away. Had a ct scan and found "studding on my omentum" the largest of which is 3cm

Brief Answer:
Hello. It can be a metastasis from colon cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the details. So as you had a background of crohns, most likely cause can be from Colonic mets. Other differential can be from pancreatic cancer or mesothelioma.
Biopsy and immunohistochemistry test will give the answer.
Thanks and regards
