Anyone else? Please don't leave me on this funky limb alone.
Yes I have terrible pain with BM's and have for years. I never knew it was my floppy retroverted uterus sitting on my colon. Just this week a gas pain took me to the floor like someone had just stabbed me and I couldn't breathe. It was still 5 more minutes before the urge to go came and then it was not pleasant. You are not alone. We won't leave you, well maybe for a couple days while visiting the castle.

Re: Swelly belly BEFORE surgery

I was looking online for something to help with gas and bloating and I found Digestive Advantage. I've been taking it for 5 days and my tummy is so much better now. I've had IBS for years and nothing has ever worked. This stuff is great!!!!
You can find it at walgreens or CVS, on Amazon

I get gas too! However, I do have bowel problems as well. What does your GP say? Over the counter remedies? Have you tried any?

Wow so many of us have the smae thing going on. I never thought of the swelly belly as being conected to all of the "female" issues untill now. Its more clear now that it may go away for good. Good Luck to all and God Bless.
