Ok! Not the best topic,but at least it is not about BM. Lately I've been having really bad gas, I mean I could kill things it is so bad. (The military could use it) I have been eating pretty much the same things other than adding wheat bread to the mix. I'm going to stop the wheat and see if that helps. My doctor had once told me that gas is good and gas can also be bad. The bad being that there could be some type of blockage. Is this true? I'm two months post-op Ileoresection and I really don't want the disease to come back this quick.
Any advise?

Passing gas is good! If I am blocked -- gas stops coming out, I know I've got a blockage.

A lot of gas in my experience is an imbalance of intestinal bacteria. And usually not so good. Personally I take an antifungal for a few days, which is a heavy handed approach - but I'm on xifaxan almost all the time.

I had a hard time getting balanced after i had surgery in july (i got a prep for resection, even though i didn't get one)... that prep of antibitiocs b4 and after surgery really whacks your intestinal flora!

I noticed in your sig that you have no probotiocs in it, is that true? If that's the case could you could start out simply with a loading dose (5-6 caps a day for 3-4 days) of a good quality probiotiic and see if that works??

I know the feeling. When I get bad gas, I feel like I could power the east coast! Someone metioned a bacteria imbalance..since I started eating Activia every day my gas is much better. But I like to have some gas because it is when I don't have gas that I take it as a warning sign and begin my preventative measures.

Thanks for the advise, I was getting worried. Something new has happened within the last few weeks. I all of a sudden feel the need to have a BM and than comes a crampy pain about 3-4 on scale, it lasts for about 3-5 seconds and then I hear a gurgle on my left side and the pain is gone. It happens really quick. I then have a BM and I'm fine. Any ideas??

I had pain again last night, It was so sharp like someone was shoving a knife up my rearend. Had BM and I feel okay, not great just okay.
I'm starting to get a little freaked out about this pain lately. :-(
I called GI and he said to go on low residue.I have been for the most part on a low residue but I'll listen and see what happens.
HELP!

I hope the low residue diet helps you out. Pain is no fun at all.
