Do anyone have any suggestions on how to keep gas off of your stomach? I have been eating a great deal of salads I purchase from Walmart (marketside chopped salad mix) that have cabbage, spinach, broccoli and many other nutritious vegetable in it but it gives me awful gas pains and gas period. I have tried Gas-x maximum strength and it helps some but do anyone suggest another alternative, should I take something like a Bean-o before eating! It is embarrassing because it smells so bad! I am 3mths post-op and have been doing great! I am just embarrassed by the stench and thank goodness for PooPourri toilet spray! #staysafemyfriends

Perhaps give the raw salad veges a miss for a little while see if that helps. If the gas stops you know that the raw veges are possibly the culprit.

Cabbage, broccoli, cauli, brussel sprouts plus some others are probably the gassy culprits.

This is why I avoid these vegetables!!! Even before surgery they caused too many issues for me, and I'll be avoiding them as much as I can once I can start eating those kinds of vegetables again (cooked or raw). Lettuces and spinach are fine, but the gassy veggies are not worth the pain and gas that comes afterwards.

I'm extremely gassy and I'm not consuming vegetables until this upcoming week. My issue will be that cruciferous vegetables are my favorite, especially broccoli. I will have to find other vegetables to eat for awhile, until I'm further along the journey. Today makes 1 month post op for me, let's see how it goes.
