Please Help I have gas, farting, since Gastric By-pass!!
I had gastric bypass June 2006. I have lost 129 pounds BUT>>>>Has anyone had a problem with gas, farting, since they have had gastric bypass? Ever since I have had the surgery I have had gas but it is getting even worse. I thought it was food related but it is all the time and the smell is unbearable especially for others, my family. This has never happened until I had the surgery. I called my doctor, who did the surgery, and he told me to call my family doctor. I talked to my family doctor and he said this is a natural thing but this is unimaginable. Gas is natural to a certain point so this is why I am writing this to see if this is a problem with anyone else. Should I set up an appointment and meet with my surgeon? Does anyone think something is wrong?
