Gene, welcome to the other side. I had a big problem with the gas, and the pains lasted a week. Best thing for it is walking as much as possible. Just strap on that leg bag, and move around.
Be careful not to snag the catheter on something as you move around the house. It wouldn't result in anything good.
Good luck for a speedy recovery and a good path report.
