I am full of air

Hi Iam new to the site and had my surgery one week ago Wednesday28th. I am no longer on pain pills, just ibuprofen. I am up and walking, doing dishes and small chores around the house, But I do have alot of pressure and one big airbubble that sloshes around, and the bowels are not working yet. I have not gained any weight but feel full all the time. Hope I am not the only one out there like this.

Re: I am full of air

I hope it comforts you to know that it's very common. It took a good two weeks for my bms to return to normal and the gas pains (air bubbles) are from the CO2 they use to expand your stomach. That was the worst part for me. It was uncomfortable at best. That too will pass. I ate very little for about 3 weeks. Nothing tasted good and what I did eat I was full with only a few bites. Sad to say but that isn't a problem anymore. Good luck and take care
