Does anyone have gas build-up in their gut after the colectomy?  Has anyone tried Beano or gas-x?  If so, did it help?  Did it have side effects?

It's totally normal and I found that time, more than anything else, helped resolve the problem.  As your small intestine gets used to it's new job, the gas will start to go away and eventually probably only build up at nighttime.  You can certainly try things like Beano...I tried but it didn't really make a difference for me, but I might have given up on it too quickly.  Things like cammomile tea really helped me, or even peppermint tea; they are great for getting rid of gas.  Hope you feel better soon.

It is very normal to have gas. If you don't eat when you should that might cause you to have gas. Also the food you eat, alot of certain food gives me gas. I can't drink pop it kills my tummy! I have tried Beno and for me the longer I used it the better it worked for me! Hope thing go well for you, take care.
