How is his incision (assuming he was neutered )?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
no he ate rock and rags remove from stomach and one rock from colon
Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 3 months ago.

It may be that his abdominal wall is still healing and causing some twinges. This can take some time to heal

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 3 months ago.

How does his incision look? Is it red or inflamed?

Gastrointestinal surgery can sometimes affect nerves in different parts of the body so we may be seeing some small residual effect of this. Does he ever limp on this leg ?

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 3 months ago.

If he was having some slight symptoms before surgery it is also possible that he has a little pinched nerve, but usually these dogs will limp.
