I’m coming up to 48 hours post lap and am struggling with pain, the doctor didn’t give me a prescription for any painkillers and I’ve just been using ibuprofen but I can only take so much a day. It’s more gas pains than anything and the constant bubbling feeling inside...I’m drinking peppermint tea, taking windeze and getting up to walk around every hour or so but just need some pain relief to sleep. Any ideas?

Yeah I’ve been trying the hot water bottle and it does help massively but my pain seems to get really bad just after I’ve eaten, I assume it makes the gas shift around again. I’ve got to hand it to my partner who’s been massaging my shoulders and getting very little sleep as I’m constantly up peeing.
Hi guys, thanks for all the great responses...I actually got relief In the form of something very different, I hadn’t pooped since surgery so I picked up some milk of magnesia and had the laxative dose and lone behold not only did I go to the loo I didn’t stop pumping (much to my partners dismay) and by goodness I think Between burping and trumping I must of got rid of the trapped gas because I feel ten times better tonight and can lay so comfortably now! No painkillers for nearly the full day now.
