How do you relieve gas?

I just had surgery, and I have gas all the time!


Answer by  bubbyboy (9929)

There are many over the counter brands of gas relief medications. These products are supposed to absorb gas to make it stop or at least make it easier to expell.

Gas can be relieved by gently massaging the abdomen and applying a hot-water bottle or pad to the area. Or walk around the house slowly for 15 to 20 minutes. Gas can also be relieved with the use of charcoal tablets which you can purchase at any local drug store.

The gas will probably go away on its own as your body heals from surgery. If not, there are many over-the-counter drugs that can help eliminate the gas. You can also try changing certain foods you eat that can cause gas like spicy foods, acidic foods, and beans.

Post-operatiave gas is common in abdominal and pelvic surgeries. Three suggestions: #1: Walk as much as possible. #2: Eat solid foods freequently and #3: A medication known as Gas-X or generically, Simethicone can provide relief. This is usually a temporary, but unpleasant, side effect of surgery.

in order to relive gas you may have to take a medication. They sell some products over the counter that work well. If those don't work you'll need a prescription for your doctor.

Try eating daily yogurt to calm your digestive system. To relieve the pains from gas you need to expel it. Get into a position with your bottom raised above the rest of you- an on all fours position on the floor to allow the gas to be expelled.

You should not eat too much fruits like apples. Also do not drink soda. Eat food that is easy digestible.

Pepsi! Or any kind of carbonated drink. My mother has similar problems with gas and acid problems. I dunno what it is but the carbonation in the soda helps to lessen the symptoms. It doesn't work very well if the pop is flat though.
