Why Do I Have Nerve Pain And Itching After Having The Colon Removed?

I ust had 18 inches of colon removed (cancer). Theres a big lump just above the belly button, and it, as well as the skin all around the topside of the lump and the belly button feel are driving me insane. Feels like nerve pain and itches like crazy.. Can't stand clothing to touch it.

Hi

After hearing your history i would advise you to take gabapentin tablets twice daily for 14 days after nerve pain.

For itching u can take Cetirizine tablets twice daily for 5 days.
