Constant problems with trapped gas



Recommended Posts

I am 8 months post-op. I have had issues with gas and severe gas pain. I do not have low pain tolerance by any means, but sometimes the pain is extremely intense. It's caused me to nearly pass out at one point, and that sounds so absurd really...because, gas?!

Does anyone else experience this? I have tried the gas pills and such with very minimal relief. I do have chronic Constipation as well, so I know that does not help. My next appointment is in May, so I will bring all of this up. I'm just curious who has these issues and how long have you been dealing with them?

TIA!!

Hello Reign,

I am 11 year post op. I still have some gas issues. I find laying down on a rolled up pillow and rocking back and forth on it seems to push the gas along. Think of it like soothing a baby with collic. Tummy time works for us too.

Thanks!! I also find it difficult to burp. It's crazy how it messes with things like that. I will try the pillow thing. Gas is definitely a pain that I do not deal well with lol

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
