I’m 3 weeks PO and I have the worst gas ever now and can’t trust my farts. I also have the runs every day. Maybe it’s from the mushy food or liquids idk. Is this normal?

I believe it is very normal as the first rule that I picked up on this forum was never trust a fart. Many people have had accidents and one poor lady soiled herself in a store. You must be feeling worn out.

I think you maybe having intolerances to the sugars in your Protein shakes or milk. Some people become lactose intolerant after surgery. I think contacting your team would be a good idea. If its just the mushy food or the amount of liquid we have to take it will improve as soon as you get on to more normal foods. I hope you get better soon

I had the runs and gas and bloating also couldn't trust my facts fir the first probably month and a half but I was also on the liquid and puree diet longer than most. But it got better when I could eat actual food except I'm still pretty burpy and I get bloated sometimes overall I feel good.

Although it’s not as common as constipation this is not the first time I have heard of this. I am not sure if you can take something such as immodium?? I would contact my team to be sure. You can definitely try gas ex for the gas and heating pads some say help as well.
