The gas was the worst part of my recovery. Gas-x is the best. It does seem to just get better over time but it did take a while. I still have to watch what I eat or I will still get bad gas. Best wishes.

I just wrote about this on the update thread. I had to go to a really bland diet this weekend because of a stomach flu and I realised that I have to watch my beverages and diet. I was not in pain per se, but I definately feel better when I cut out the pop, junk food and onions.

This surgery is going to make me get healthy in spite of myself. So far I have quit smoking and now the junk food is going. At this rate I am going to end up taking up jogging or something foolish like that.

Steady increase seems a little odd. My gas pains have lessened, but every now and then I have a little episode. No problems on BM front me for, just some discomfort and spasming when peeing. Which according to the doctor is normal and will go away with time. Are you symptoms steadily getting worse, or can you see peaks and valleys? Could there be something in your diet doing it? If not, calling you doc is always the best way.

Laterbloomer, congrats on NOT smoking and good luck with you jogging...

Isn't it funny how it sometimes takes a kick like this in the pants to get one's life in order. I was not in too bad of a shape before, but I have certainly noticed that my diet is changing. Last night I had a salad and jello (not together) for dinner, and felt totally happy with it!

Mine got worse around a couple of weeks after but then got better but I have days where they are really bad (thanks broccolli ) and days where not so bad at all. Sometimes they still hurt but they come and go and most days are ok. Have you tried the gas x? I tried that last week when I was hurting and begging to rip a big one it seemed to help.

I am definitely more gasaeous than I was before my surgery, particularly when I wake up in the morning. I haven't found any difference when I change my diet, and I assume it will subside as my insides get used to their new arrangement.

My bowels were not great until about my 11-12th day, so I think I am just getting back to the new normal.

At about 4 1/2 weeks I started having much more pressure in my tailbone area and also had more spasms when urinating. I also felt like I had to pee all day. I had the tailbone pressure right after surgery and every once in a while the first week. The spasms only last a day or two after surgery. I went to my doctor last week for it and all was good. No infection and it went away the day after. I was cleared for everything at that point. Of course, this started again yesterday. I am thinking the episodes are related to constipation and bowels. It seem to happen when I ate too much. (I ate very lightly the first 4 weeks). Needless to say, I will be attempting to eat less the next couple of weeks to see if it helps. It is just weird to start having issues so long after the operation.
