Gas Pains 3 weeks post op

Hi Ladies--I'm almost 3 wks post op (12/27/11) and I'm still experiencing gas pains. TAH w/BSO Is this uncommon? Gas-x helps, but not completely. I'm walking about half a mile every day, getting lots of rest, drinkng at least 48 oz of water a day and taking 2 Colace per day. Any feedback would be appreciated--I'm guessing it will get better, just wasn't expecitng it this far out from sugery.

PS any equestriannes out there? How long were you out of the saddle? I'm a dressage rider and wondering when it might be reasonable to mount up again.

Are you allowed to wear an abdominal binder? While I didn't have an TAH, I had a SAH and found that it helped with the bloating and gas pain. Honestly, the gas was the most uncomfortable part of my surgery.

Re: Gas Pains 3 weeks post op

Well, sorry to say, having had a TAH/BSO myself, the gas pains hung around for a good three weeks or maybe 4!

So, I'd say it's normal for some of us. You're doing the right things - you just have to be patient for a little while longer and you'll find they just stop! But they are worse than the surgical pain!

I doubt you'll be on horseback for a little while yet, but I can't speak from experience! But it sounds like you are a fit person, so that will be in your favour in your recovery!
