I felt that way also. It took probably 5 days before I read on here to try something like Ibuprofen. It has worked wonders. If I have been doing too much my belly still swells, and I will be 5 weeks post op tomorrow. hang in there, we are all with you. Wishing you a quick speedy recovery. God bless.

I would take gas meds if I were you. Also stool softeners or whatever your dr. recommends to keep the bowels moving as easily as possible.

A LOT of us here have had most of our pain from gas or constipation, so be proactive on that front! Eat easy foods that keep you moving like oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, etc. Avoid spicy, fatty foods and also carbonated beverages if you are bloated with gas.

Good luck and glad you are doing well,
