Who has experienced this? Was in agony last night. Almost ended up in ER. Had to take tramadol and sleep on a heating pad last night.

I have not but they do use air during the procedure. Apparently Gas and abdominal bloat is normal. You may want to get some gas-x strips, many people swear by them after laparoscopic procedures so I imagine they could be helpful. Walking and moving seem to be the best medicine for this type of gas. Sorry you are in pain. Feel better soon.
