I am 9 weeks out from Gastric Bypass surgery. 9 months ago I had the sleeve performed but due to leaks I was converted into a bypass. For the past few weeks, especially at bedtime, I am passing an enormous amount of gas. When I wake up, I continue until I get out of bed. Has anyone else experienced this and do you know why? I don't think I eat enough to pass so much gas.

This is a fairly typical side effect (although perhaps not a publicly announced one) of Gastric Bypass. This proceedure can cause a person to have a malabsorption issues. You don't absorb the food and nutrients as well anymore and when the undigested food gets down to the colon, the enzymes and bacteria there digesting the food and cause excess malodorous flatulence.
