I had a resection of part of TI, I-C valve and colon (~12 inches altogether) in April. I have so much gas that I spend the majority of my day holding it in or trying to find ways to slip out at work to find an isolated place to pass it. I'll go for a walk, pass tons of gas, and a few minutes later, it starts all over again. I know it sounds like a trivial problem, but it really is uncomfortable and hard to concentrate on my job, when I'm so busy concentrating on not letting out a huge fart! I mentioned it to my internist recently, and he just asked if I tried Beano (doesn't work). I don't know if this is from the resection, or a return of this DD. Does anyone have any advice on dealing with this annoying problem?
