Painful scar tissue years after anterior resection.

Hello, I had colorectal cancer 3 !/2 years ago and had rectum removed and reattached to anus..I didn't have a colostomy ever and my colon has "learned" to become a rectum and works fairly well.  My problem is that when I try to resume my running practice (was an avid runner before cancer)   it causes dull pain in the region where the surgery was. this pain stays with me for days and I'm forced to just take it easy..then if I don't run it will subside...I figure it must be scar tissue..Does anyone else have pain years after resection ? I'd really like to run again. thanks..
