I've read that a lot of people use these post op to relieve the gas pain. But I can't find them in stores so I'm going to buy them online. Do they really work? Do they ( meaning dr and nurses) let you use them in the hospital post op? I guess if anyone can tell me are they really worth it?

I bought a box at Walgreens Drug Store and found I didn't need them. I was told to walk around to relieve gas pains. Never really felt any gas pains. I only felt one of my incisions and it was tolerable that I only had one dose of pain med right after surgery. so I guess for me, it wasn't worth it.

Look in the antacid aisle. Since they are strips that dissolve in the mouth, they can be used in the hospital. I paid about 3.50 for a box.

They work, at least for me, and they work fast. I still use them occasionally. I picked mine up at Walmart.< /p>

Gas-X strips tasted absolutely gross to me. I went back to using the chewable Gax-X and they work just fine.

You guys are fortunate to know about those strips. My pains from the gas they use during the operation made me close to tears for 5 DAYS.
