Has anyone suffered painful excess gas and bloating?



Recommended Posts

Hi, I am from Australia and had a sleeve done in 2011. I then had revision surgery in June and had the SADI or I am guessing the “mini bypass” it’s the loop but with only one join if that makes sense? Anyhow, it is very new here and I was only the 3rd patient my surgeon had performed this particular surgery on. I have healed well and lost weight but I am struggling with constant bloating, excessive gas and abdominal pain. Has anyone else had this problem? I have tried somac plus degas medications, ibs medication etc but it just keeps reoccurring. Help, I have just started dating again and this is going to be an issue so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks 🙏

Ginger and mint herbal teas really help with gas. So does the spice Cumin. Probably not a real answer...but they can't hurt?

Is it possibly something in your diet? I know when I eat too many carbs I get gassy, I have to limit my Protein Bars for this reason.

Yes so gassy! And it happens to me if I’m too lenient on the carbs. Have you tried charcoal pills? Charcoal absorbs gas, they work. I use them.
