Had colonoscopy. Severe aches in lumbar area. Took Tylenol. Further?

Had colonoscopy two days ago. I am having really severe aches and cramps in my lumbar area. How do I know if this is just trapped gas or something worthy of going to the doctor for? I took (2) tylenol about an hour ago and it hasn t touched the pain. I haven t had a BM since the procedure (not usual for me) but tried to take a little milk of magnesia last night to help.

why have you took tynenol is not clear to me. any undiagnosed pain abdomen should not be treated by self medication. lumber pain can be musculoskeletal, inflammatory conditions. X-ray lumbosacral spine may be helpful. but detailed clinical examination is mandatory. go to a surgeon.
