Can we talk gas for a minute? Nobody told me that the gas they give you is a lot different than in a regular laparoscopic surgery. You are constantly burping and passing gas and sometimes it can be painful and makes you vomit. When I spoke to a nurse practitioner about it she was vague about this and nowhere I've looked online will give me any indication as to how long this will last. Can anyone please shed some light on this subject? My surgery was Tuesday and I'm really uncomfortable. I've tried everything they have recommended but at times it's really bad. Help!!!
