Hi! Good afternoon. I am Dr Shareef answering your query.
Gaining such kind of weight post surgery is not normal, and I would advise you for a thyroid
function test for this. If positive, you have to get treated for it.
With a history of two surgeries in the past and also of diverticulitis
, the pain what you are getting immediately after food could be due to some kind of sub acute obstruction which might be resulting due to possible adhesion
in the abdomen post past surgeries. If I were your doctor, I would advise you to get yourself reviewed by your surgeon, who might suggest you for an ultrasound/CT scan
of the abdomen to rule this out. This would also rule out any adnexal pathology in you and if found positive, you could go and consult a gynaecologist for an opinion and management. Till then you could go for some anti spasmodic drug whenever you get such pain.
I hope this information would help you in discussing with your family physician/treating doctor in further management of your problem. Please do not hesitate to ask in case of any further doubts.
Thanks for choosing health care magic to clear doubts on your health problems. I wish you an early recovery. Dr Shareef.
