I had a revision nissen with a gallbladder surgery. Awful gas- truly awful.
My surgeon said gas would last until April (I had it Oct 31 2008).
Now I find (not to scare you) that the medicine the GI gave me for post gallbladder diarrhrea gives me gas. I take it only at night but am looking for other meds that do not do that
I thought of two other old family recipes for gas
One is ginger in tea (1-2 tsp) NO dairy whatsoever
and the other is lemon juice squeezed intoa glass of warm water
they can't hurt! I feel for you as I had the awful pains and bloating with the gas

I hope the gas problem has lessened for you.
I am one of those rare individuals for whom white delicious apples help. I also can drink apple juice though white grape or dark grape is better for me.
Hope all is well
