I believe I am bloating right now. My stomach area is bigger and it hurts a little. I know that I have tightened intestines right now because of my last colonoscopy and that it is possible that food could get stuck in them. I have Immodium Advanced and I am thinking to take it. The problem is that I have to wait until I have a bowel movement. Anyone know of any other treatment for bloating?

Immodium is for stopping diarrhea NOT bloating. Do not take it for that. Its very common for us to have the bloating, I would try something like GAS-X for the bloating. Good luck!

If my bloating or need to pass gas gets bad, I lay on my side on the bed. Sometimes alternating sides. This will some times
help some of the gas to move... Lay in the recovery position!!

Taking firbe supplements daily has gotten rid of my bloating and excess gas as well, it's been about 5 yrs now and I still take one fibre supplement a day as my GI instructed.
