Assuming most gas form in the colon,does colectomy reduce gas production?
What about fermentation by vegetables?

-IBS-A,C with meteorism(trapped gas) and pubic burning-

well i dont know about colostomys, but ileoostomies still have gas. I have less than i did when i had UC
As for vegetables, they dont break down completly, at least not in me, they come out mostly like they went in, lol.
But they do cause more gas than other foods

I still have plenty of gas. Plenty of bact. still there to make gas.
The major difference is that it comes out comfortably (my abd. doesn't ache all the time from it) and no smell. Well, except for when you vent or empty.
28 yrs. old. married with one beautiful daughter (born 11/20/07)
-diagnosed with severe pancolitis u/c 2002 had total colectomy 12/19/08; emergency surgery due to abscess-had to redo ileostomy and switch to left side 12/25/08; 2/15/09 found blood clot in superior mesenteric vein (prob. from inf. and surgery inflammation)
coumadin, prenatal vit.
(temporary ileostomy....maybe)
