I am pretty sure there are many of you who have had problems with gas (or wind, as my Europeian friends call it). I am having a horrible time with this and need suggestions. Gasex and peppermint tea are not helping and my normal medication regime that I have set up for this is also not working. I know that I am not blocked as my stoma is releasing fluid but it seems like the horrible gas that rolls around from one side to the other is not escaping. I am, at times, literally bent over in severe pain. I ended up having to take one of my heavy hitter pain meds last night to be able to get some rest. Do any of you have any methods to address this?? I am becoming very frustrated and depressed about all of this. Can high stress cause this sort of reaction? It seems to have acted up really bad during these holidays. I didn't think I was stressed out but I did have my sister in law here for 5 days and her schedule is completely different from ours. Please, please, if you have a solution for me, please let me know. This pain and gas are wearing me out pysically and mentally. Thank you.
