Gas and gas pain after Bariatric surgery

I am a 39 year old female. I had restrictive bariatric surgery (Lap band) 8 days ago to help resolve my obesity. I was told to expect gas and gas pain for a few days after surgery as the gas in my abdomen from the surgery passed. I dealt with it.

But since the last 3 days, I have had severe gas and gas pain. I am on pureed foods right now. I normally wake up fine but as the day progresses, I begin to get gas pains in my left shoulder and arm and then under my ribs on the left side. The gas does not pass as flatulence unless I push it. With restrictions on being able to use my stomach muscles till such time that I heal - it becomes very painful and uncomfortable. Only walking has helped. I have been taking Eno, Gas X, etc for temporary relief, but cannot take this forever.
Please advise if there is anything that I can take which will help.
Thank you

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take three doses of Arnica 200c at a gap of 4 hours for one day (not daily, only one day).
See how it affects in the next 2 days. If there is no relief, please take three doses of Lycopodium 200c at a gap of 4 hours for one day (not daily, only one day). Then see how lyco works for the next 7 days.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 4 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 3-4 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

Thank you Dr. Kadwa - the Arnica worked like magic. As i move through my eating stages i.e soft foods and then regular solid foods, can I use the same medicine again should I face the same problem?

Thank you

Yes you may take Arnica 200c at your eating stages i.e soft foods and then regular solid foods, but you should remember that -
**it should not be taken unnecessarily
**After taking it you should see how it affects in the next 2 days. If there is no relief, you should take three doses of Lycopodium 200c at a gap of 4 hours for one day (not daily, only one day). Then see how lyco works for the next 7 days.

Hello there,

I am conitnuing this thread as it gives you a history of what is happening with me. My problem with gas has resolved.
Now - since the last month I have had itching at the anus. The more I scratch - the more I want to. I have on couple occasions, scratched till I began to break skin and bleed. No odour - no secretion. I have noted that if the skin there is moist I tend to feel more of the itch. I do have some challenges with constipation - I am not as regular as I used to be since my intake after surgery has still not returned to normal. Also I am eating a high protein diet. Does that affect anything?

Please advise what can help my situation.

Bariatric Surgery is not suits to everyone. I had it before 3 years. I did not get any problem after it. Now I do not have any problem related to surgery. This surgery needs more care. You have to take much care after surgery. You have to change your eating habits. You have to follow doctor's instructions to stay away from any problems.
