Hi Daphnee--It's me, Kathleen, from Tijuana. I'm sorry to hear you're having gas pains. I haven't had any, so far. The meds they gave us were so-so, I think. I want to ask my doc at home for some liquid Vicodin because my port incision hurts. My mom and I are still down in Southern Cal, going home on Thurs. I can't wait for some yogurt or something! I don't feel hungry, but my stomach is growling and I'm sorta weak.

Anyway, I hope you feel better soon!

Hi - i had surgery on nov 18 and my gas pains lasted for 3 weeks - in fact, it's just been within the last two days that i haven't had any - it got better every day but it was rough - none of the other girls that had surgery the same day as me had them like i did - the heating pad and wriggling around help but just walking didn't. I did arm circles, arms over the head, folded clothes - vERY LIGHT housework seemed to help. Mostly my husband would gently and sometimes harder massage the spot and it seemed to help move it through. I also took gasx but you can only take 4 a day so i used them judiciously! hang in there as it will get better but i totally empathize with you - they hurt like crazy.
