Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. May I ask what is a low-residue diet? And the food journal is a wonderful idea. The doctor that I talked to Saturday morning just suggested I take the over-the-counter gas meds, since I was going to the bathroom and eating okay. I really didn't pass hardly any gas yesterday at all though. I'm really wondering if it wasn't that lettuce now, because I was fine up until Friday night, and I had that for lunch. I went to bed last night and was really pretty uncomfortable, just hoping that today I would feel better. I could feel gurgling all night, so I hoped something was happening. When I woke up this morning, the bloat feeling was farther down in my gut, instead of up under my ribs. So I"m assuming it's trying to move out. I also had quite a bit of D this morning, which made me feel a little better. The bloating feeling is definitely a little better today, but now the part inside which was operated on feels extremely sore and painful. And the upper left side chest pain/shoulder pain is still there. It's still worse when I breathe in deep, or lay on my left side. I suppose it could have been the CO2 they pumped in, but that was almost 2 weeks ago, and I'm just now feeling it?? For those of you that have had that pain before, what did you do and how long did it take to go away? Thanks so much for all the help!
