Hi Mary, Gas x was my pal after my last surgery. I have never had such pain from gas before. It was awful. They started me on it right after surgery and then told me to take it on a regular schedule of 9am/3pm/9pm. It really helped to take it on a schedule like that. If I forgot or went past the time I could tell the difference. I was told when they do the lap surgery they have to pump your abdominal cavity full of air to lift the wall up so they can move around in the tight space and they try to push as much out as possible before they sew you back up but there is still some left and it takes time for the body to get rid of it. I hope your feeling better real soon. Glad to hear your resting a lot. That's what your body needs right now. Barb
