Can’t fart after sleeved surgery



Recommended Posts

Hi friends! So I got my sleeve done on 2/1/22 and I was discharged same night since I was able to walk and eat fine. I have been burping frequently which I know it normal, but I’m two days out and still cannot fart. I wrote my surgeon, waiting to hear back. I just wanted to know if anyone experienced something similar? Anything I can try to get myself to fart?

I didn’t have any gas post surgery but everyone says that the walking is supposed to help you pass gas. It sounds like you are already doing that though. Maybe gas X?

Walking is the best way to pass the gas, whether it's burping or farting, either way it'll come out.

It's normal not to be able to fart (you're constipated!) and it will go away. As GradyCat said, walk. Walk a ton. It will go away. The first few days post-op are the hardest.

It took me 2 days after leaving the hospital so 3 days total. I had all the little burps. What a great feeling when you do!!!! Remember what comes after the gas!!!!

For months after my surgery I hardly ever farted. Maybe a little ‘breath’ of one at night. I think the changes to my diet was the reason especially the low carbs & low sugar. I started passing wind a little more often when I was eating more carbs (whole & multi grain). Still don’t fart much, usually just a couple at night but I do pass more wind if I’m constipated.

Out of curiosity why are you concerned? If it’s because you’re trying to expel surgery gas your burping works too. As does walking & gasX. Remember wind builds as part of the digestive process. If you’re not eating much you’re not digesting much so reduced wind.

Oh, and I’d be careful trying to make yourself fart after surgery. Diarrhoea is common post surgery & liquid farts are real & not pleasant!

All the best.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
