Hi This is Dr Stan her to help you today. The lower left abdominal pain caused by weight bearing could be a GI problem. When you had the surgery, did you get any type of anesthesia? The pain you are describing sounds more like low back nerve or muscle pain. However, do you have any history of diverticulitis and did you have any fever when the pain started? If you get back to me with more information I will be better able to help you.
Then I need to stay with my first thoughts of muscle or nerve irritation which should resolve shortly. Prednisone would cause upper GI symptoms such as nausea, burning sensation in the stomach area, not lower GI symptoms. Call your GP and let him/her evaluate your lower back and also look for possible hernia, either inguinal or femoral as a cause. I hope this has been helpful and feel better soon. A positive rating is always appreciated.
