I had a right side colectomy 20 months ago due

I had a right side colectomy 20 months ago due to appendix removal and then sepsis. Now my bowel movements are running and black tar and green poop and then yellow poop and I get 20 seconds notice when i have to go. A doctor said my valve was taken out during the surgery. He wants to do an upper endoscopy this week, my question is why do that if he knows already its gone and in hs wrds I'm an open spiket so to speak

I am a 46-year old female and had a partial colectomy (5-6 inches removed) 5 weeks ago due to diverticulitis . I m still having a sharp pain on my lower right side (in between the 2 smaller lapriscopic incisions. Both incisions healed fine but I have this stabbing pain in this one spot whenever I move a certain way - mostly when starting to sit down or stand back up or trying to lay on my right side and especially when getting into the car. Is this normal?

I had a partial colectomy done about 4 1/2 yrs ago. I have been having severe abdominal pain that is sometimes on my lower right side the. Switches to my left side. The pain is in the front and also in my lower back on the same side. I had x rays of my abdomen today and all of my stomach and small intestine are over on my lower left side where the pain is today. A few days ago it was on the right side. This has been occurring over the past 5 months. My dr has ordered a small bowel follow through. I only have about 1/2 inch left of my large intestine. I do not have a bag. Is there anyway of fixing this without doing surgery. What will this test show and what options are there if everything is sort of swimming from my right side to my left side. When the pain gets extreme I usually have constipation also. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or ideas to what a solution could be. I am a 47 yr old female. I had a 18 inch blockage in my large intestine that the dr said was like hard molding clay.
