     Hi!  I've been having a major problem with painful gas and bloating for nearly two weeks.  I just got out of the hospital for a partial bowel obstruction due to a huge paristomal hernia that I have.  It is inoperable.  sad
     The doctors sent me home yesterday with simethicone (Gas X) but it doesn't seem to be working.  The gas pain is really bad and the grumbling in my stomach is very loud!  I feel like a two-legged whoopee cushion!  tongue    The gas moves around in my intestines but isn't coming out.  I sure don't understand that.  I don't have a blockage anymore.  Things are going in my pouch just fine and I have no nausea.  Just this gas!
     Do any of you have any good suggestions as to how to get rid of this?  I've never had a problem with gas before.  This is new territory for me.  I drink plenty of water, walk, am avoiding carbonation and beans, etc.  Help!  I think I"m going to explode!   :-)

Hi There

Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble. I have heard that Peppermint Oil aids digestion. My partner was given it in hospital for wind, it was slightly heated up by the nurses.
