A tablet that might help someone with gas

Hi, after my experience of blockage/ twist what ever it was by my hernia back in March. No one seems to be able to give me a proper answer. I was left with bad pain in the left neck after eating, some pain in the bowel area, pins and needles down my left arm when I move. I had a ct scan just after, all clear apart from a insy swollen nodule in the abdomen, size of a very small mole. Probably a new growth on its way. Also had a barium x ray of the bowel , all clear. CA 125 was 138 in April. To cope with all the side effects I tried herbs, charcoal , diets changes etc and then found this tablet which has been a life saver. It is called Dida, made in Denmark, from Holland and Barrett, just under £22 for 90 tablets , months supply, they then say to reduce the dose to two a day. Its cinnamon based and full of all natural things. It works by stopping the food fermenting and making the gas, it also helps maintain the digestive tract. I am not on chemo but you would need to check if you are, I have found it so good I thought it might help someone. Me - not having a op for the hernia unless it happens again, all the side effects gradually going, its taken months. Decided at my checkup not to have a blood test as it may not be a true reading, main thing is I feel reasonably well, I can always get one done at the Drs. At the moment I am trying the Ladycare magnet to see if it improves my hot flushes,burning feet , and sleep which I assume is from the chemo last year, or stress as my husband is having chemo for advanced bowel cancer. Best wishes to you all. Trix

Dear Trix

Thank you for sharing such a useful tip. I am glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better at the moment and hope that the magnet does the trick for you.

Hi Millie, thanks for your kind wishes to us. We are ploughing on, doing quite well in spite of our cancers. The magnet, too early to say as it's only been a week but things have improved, could be coincidence, we will see. Best wishes you, Trix


Thanks for that info. Sounds pretty unpleasant for you and it must be really hard with your husband having cancer too. I hope you get some good times over the summer

Love Francesca x
