RNY 12/17 Over inflated



Recommended Posts

This gas they filled me with is crazy! I'm a week PO and every day I feel like I'm eating a huge bowl of Beans and paying the price. I think maybe it has tapered off but then BAM! it's back with a vengeance. I might have to get the gas-x but I've been told that it just has to work it's way out. Is that right?

Seems like I lived on GasX & nausea pills for the 1st 2 months!

I had the same problem. It was terrible. In the hospital the Surgeon order a suppository for me. It did help. I was also told to lay on my left side as much as tolerable. It is the path of least resistance for the gas to escape. I also took a dissolvable gas pill several times a day they tasted like mint so it was a treat It does get better, this too shall pass Literally.

Had my sleeve done on the same day, and GasX is the best thing ever. Also, walking around the house has helped a lot as well. Good luck!

Can someone explain to me why GasX helps, when the gas is actually pumped into your abdominal cavity, and not into your intestines? :-)

The gas-x has helped me as well as walking. I am PO sleeve day 5. I'm still gassy, but not nearly as much as I was that 1st day Jesus! And dr8nking slow sips of liquids help move it and hot showers, believe it or not.

Are you having regular bowel movements? I noticed when I get constipated I tend to have a lot more gas. Constipation is a real problem after the RNY surgery so make sure you are aware of any issues before they get too severe.

I had my bypass 12/17 too. It’s better now but was brutal for a good 6 days. Walking definitely helped and I wish I’d walked more sooner. I was given a prescription for liquid colase, if needed, so I may bring that into the mix if this lasts another day or two.

I had zero gas pain post-op because my surgeon said he spent a good amount of time sucking it all back out. lol. But everyone says GasX helps. I don't understand why it would help, but I think they have dissolvable tabs you can take.

They do, but don't use the Wal-Mart generic- ineffective!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
