Staples are out

The staples on some of the spots hurt but my cabana boy lost his feeling in his hand LOL and those stir strips are a joke they came off all by them selves in the shower and I feel buch better but I have question what is the best thing for the gas I can't get it under control and it hurts big time.
I hope all is well you all and I will talk to you later .

((((Tammmy))))) I don't have any experience with either staples or steri strips, but I wanted to address your questions re:

The best things to do to deal with the gas are to and to plenty of water. I found that drinking my water at room temperature made a big difference: while cold water tastes so good, it tends to kind of shock our system. If the pain is really bad, you can use OTC preparations like Gas-X, but be sure to clear it with your doctor, just to be on the safe side.

Sending lots of s your way.

Hi Tammy if your steri strips came off within one day, I would give your DR a call. They really should be on there at least for a short while. Let your DR decide whether they need to be replaced or not.

When my DR put mine on Thursday he told me he will take them off in two weeks, and they should stay on through showers, swimming, hot tub, everything. I've taken a couple of showers since then and they haven't budged.

To minimize gas, I found that (((Dany's))) suggestion of drinking water at room temperature helps. Also, no sodas, no beans or broccoli. DRs differ about gas-x... mine said he didn't think it would help but it was certainly OK for me to take it (I did, and I think it does help). Some ladies have had better success with Bean-O, especially the liquid form.

Hope this helps!
