Are you talking the gas they pump in to your body cavity at surgery, and getting it gone? If so, then walking, moving about, and time. Nasty, but it does pass. Indigestion tablets don’t really help much because the gas is outside your digestive system!

Or are you talking intestinal gas - like a need to fart? Not passing wind? Then tablets can help, but also look at your diet.

If you have just had surgery - welcome to the “loser’s bench”. It is a wild ride, but life changing!

Walk and stretch, and then walk some more. You can actually feel it moving around when you walk a lot.
