Gas from Laporoscopy

I have had my laporoscopy, hysteroscopy and cystoscopy yesterday. I was really nauseous yesterday but today I am so sore. I feel so bloated from the gas. I feel like I can feel it moving around inside. My shoulders are manageable with a heat pack. It's mainly around my stomach area. The nurses at the hospital said that burping and farting helps but then I read else where that only walking around will help? I really struggle walking around my whole stomach just hurts and it so hard to just roll out of the bed or couch. Any tips besides walking and heat. How long does the gas take to leave the body? I feel like I have a lot!

Try peppermint tea it does help. It can take a good few weeks for the gas to go, it depends on how much you had and how mobile you are.

You will be sore today but try to walk a little and build up as the more you walk the quicker the gas will go

Do u know if walking would do any damage to the actual surgery site?

No gentle and slow walking is fine, otherwise they wouldn't let you out of bed.

The gas pains hurt more than the wounds don't they. You will it moving about too, gentle rubbing your stomach might help too xxx

Sorry you're in pain! Advice already given is the best - walking around and peppermint. For me the gas after lap was worse than the pain of endo itself. Not nice, but it does go away.

I was told after my first lap, that walking after surgery helps to reduce chances of blood clots. That to me was more important than getting rid of the gas. I was afraid of having blood clots, so I pushed myself up every half an hour just to slowly walk around the house.

Thanks everyone the gas pain has gone down ALOT. Still not fully gone but the first 2 days were definitely the worst. I am still drinking lots of tea. And walking around the house more and more. Still haven't left the house though. Not at the stage yet. Who would have thought gas could cause so much pain.

My osteopath recommended moving arms gently as if doing back stroke to help release gas pain. Not sure if that's what did it but I didn't suffer with that too much at all.
