Anyone have extra Gas X strips they want to sell? Everyone seems to be out of stock


25 posts in this topic

I'm scheduled for my VSG in Tijuana on 5/22 and am trying to compile some necessary items to take with me in my hospital bag, and one of the things I'm having a hard time finding is the Gas X strips. It seems like many places are out of stock. I wonder if these are being discontinued? (I've heard varying reports on whether or not these work, so maybe that's why?) I'd rather have them than not have them though, so if anyone has any extras that they would be willing to sell me, let me know!

Seems like they've been discontinued. I just bought a case via eBay for our patients. Check out eBay. I see they still have them.

I can see that they are available via Amazon.com. BTW I was very diligent about buying these pre-op but then I never needed them at all. Finally threw them out when they expired. Best of luck for your surgery!

Do you have a Target near you? I got mine there... you may be able to order from Target online.

They are useless for post-operative gas. It isn't even within your intestinal tract it is in your abdomen.

I don't know why this Gas X myth keep persisting.

Shhhhh!!! You're ruining the placebo effect for everyone :)

The best method to get rid of after WLS gas is to walk, walk and walk!

Walking is the only thing that works. The worst part of my recovery was when that gas hit my shoulder and stayed there for 2 days...
