It’s a little embarrassing to talk about but has anyone else experienced abnormally foul smelling gas after gastric bypass? It doesn’t matter what I eat, it’s still awful and so embarrassing!!! I don’t know what to do. I wonder if there’s any supplement or medicine I can take to help... Anyone have advice? Thanks!

I've got so much gas that I'm a fire hazard.

Yeah mine is embarrassing to say the least! I’m constantly leaving the office. I go outside vs the bathroom. It’s terrible!

I'm pretty sure that noxious gas after RNY or DS are pretty much expected. The issue is that due to the malabsorption that these procedures cause more undigested food makes it to the colon where the enzymes there attack it leading to a much more "robust" experience.

I would also add that these are not generally temporary. I know people 10 years out from RNY that deal with this.

I recently discovered the Weight Loss Surgery Podcast and have been catching up on older episodes. The host recently talked briefly about this issue and mentioned a pill called Devrom. It's OTC and when I searched for it online I learned that it is a Bariatric Pal branded product.

https://store.bariatricpal.com/products/devrom-flatulence-deodorizer-and-internal-deodorant

I've not tried it myself, but found it very interesting, as I had no idea there was such a thing as a "flatulence deodorizer and internal deodorant." Best of luck!

yeah you guys do tend to think that way. When It happens to me, due to advanced age😦, no surgery as of yet, I look for a small child or dog to blame it on😙

Well this post wasn’t intended as a joke but thanks for the crude and somewhat immature humor.

Use this feature to your advantage. Find unaccompanied children in grocery carts and let the silent but deadlies go. 10 points if they start crying. I did that once, or twice.....

I just ordered the pills because mine are so bad I feel like I can peel paint off the wall. Fingers crossed they work.

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
