Ok so this is a little difficult to write about but what the heck. So a little background. I had diverticulitis, past tense because the 2 surgeries I had, removed the effected sections. But prior to that I had a vasectomy in 10/2010, and the sigmoidectomy 08/2/2011, and emergency operation on 08/07/2011, and after that i had the temp colostomy. Well since then, despite my self confidence, my wife and I have been intimate around 10-11 times since, and my surgeon says that it will get better. But everytime I do I get a feeling like someone has got me by the berries and is yanking them down. I get a burning sensation behind my bellybutton on down to the groin area. I was told by the surgeon that it is just because of the surgeries, and will pass over time. Granted I still give it a go, but for at least 3-5 days afterwards I get that terrible pain streaking down the umbilical line of my stomach. Anyone else had these types of pains as well???
