I am getting pain after partial colectomy

I am a 50 year old woman who had a partial colectomy 4 months ago after suffering from diverticulitis . I had very little pain after the surgery but now that I m eating a full balanced diet , I have pain in the same spot as where the diverticulitis was (12 of bowel removed, appendectomy and large umbilical hernia repair) especially after a bm and my stomach gets swollen like when I had my attacks, is this normal recovery stuff?

Thanks for the query
There are possibilities of post op adhesions which might be causing the pain. I suggest you undergo a usg abdomen to rule out other possibilities. Chances of adhesions are high with abdominal surgeries
