Gas X Strips??



Recommended Posts

I have looked all over for these strips I keep hearing about and can’t find a single one. Are people just getting the product name wrong? All I have found are chewables and liquid gels. My surgery is tomorrow and I’m almost out of time to find them. I ended up getting the chewable kind for now, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to tolerate them fresh out of surgery.

I haven't been able to find them either! Online or in store... They seem to be unavailable and I don't see them listed on Gas-x's website. I'm wondering if they stopped making them.

I've been taking the chewable version for the last week post surgery and have done alright on them, but would like to see if the strips work any better.

Ok, so it’s not just me then. I think maybe they did stop making them because they are absolutely nowhere to be found. Good to know that the chewables are working well for you. Good luck on your journey!

I think they stopped making the strips several years ago. I tried looking for them before my surgery and the only place I could find them was on places like Ebay for crazy extortionist prices.

Honestly, I didn't need them. The gas pains are mostly in your abdominal cavity, not in your GI tract. So, taking any kind of "gas relief" isn't going to do much other than relieve your mind or maybe offer a placebo effect. Walk, move, use your incentive spirometer and within a day or 2 the gas pains will be gone.

Thanks so much! I will do just that!

They are discontinued a couple of years ago.

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
