Stacy Yes, it is very possible the colon has readhered. I am having that problem right now. I had a TAH in January. I found out the surgery wasn't needed. I am very bitter that I let her touch me. I am very angry that she laughed & called me her colicky baby. Once they open you up, there's a good chance of more adhesions because they handle your organs.I don't know if you could get a tear in the colon, but you can have bowel problems - pain, constipation, pain with b.m.'s, and sometimes obstructions. Adhesions can bind everything together and cause lots of pain. And when the dr. doesn't beliveve you and says it's IBS, or calls you her colicky baby, doesn't help a bit. Millie
