A huge congrats to you guys. I am very happy to hear that your recovery has started. I have heard of this gas problem before my surgery. I needed to prove to them that things were movin before I could go. My daughter ( my nurse) had me up walkin to beat the band. Man I walked and walked. No lying down during the day at first either. Up, Up, Up. I guess she herself had a gas problem and didnt want me to get it. I hope yours is quick to subside.
