Does anyone have problems with bloating or gas pain post-op colostomy? It's been 1 day after surgery. Need suggestions so I feel better during recuperation.

Sorry, I don't remember having any gas pains after surgery. You are still in the hospital, right? Ask the nurse what you can have!

They told me to lie on my side and it worked

My nurse told me to lie on my left side in the fetal position and it definitely helped!

Sure, after major surgery.
