trapped gas in bowels.. please help
I have a bladder infection, a kidney infection, some vaginal infection thats not a yeast infection these are all related she says. Also I am extremely dehydrated. I drank over 64 ounces of fluid all within 8 hours before the test saying this. Im worried... she says drink more but IM drinking as much as I can it dfoesnt seem to be doing anything.
Also my xray showed that my large intestines are FULL of large pockets of gas. he says he's never seen anything like that. They were able to follow my entire track easily because it was so full of gas.
I am SUPER swollen, pants dont fit and I have known all week somethings wrong... why wont it come out of me on either end??????? Is there anything I can do to help this? :(
I am very miserable as you might imagine from all of these above things....I am on antibiotics now, drinking as much as possible and laying around in bed.... STUPID pain.
I did actually ASK them for an IV to help me and you all know thats a BIG deal for me.... and she said NO just drink a LOT more. *cry*

your doctor doesn't sound like he gets it, when it comes to the needs of a patient with a DS.
There has to be something that is trapping the gas inside.
I know that two things have worked for me to expel gas: massage my belly starting just below my breasts and not pushing too hard just a firm pressure going downward from one side to the other and across again - picture your intestine winding back and forth and follow that path with your hand.
Secondly I have found that walking really helps. Go in a safe but isolated area and/or with someone you are comfortable passing gas in front of as you want to get this stuff out and holding back is not good for you so if it wants to come - let it!
Hoping the days ahead are more comfortable for you.
