Welcome to Healing Well! You're now a member of our
Sorry to hear you're having so many problems with gas bloating. That's a really big problem for some during the healing stage. From my calculations you're just under 4 months post op. I know it's hard, but some of these things just have to run their course.
Don't think that if you're experiencing these problems now that you'll be experiencing them forever. Just take it a day at a time, and try to relax and surrender to the path your recovery takes. The more you struggle against it, the more difficult it will be.
Have you discussed the gas issue with your surgeon? Not being able to burp is a normal experience after this surgery. My stomach can burp itself, but I can't burp at will. I'm not sure that being so focused on burping is a good thing right now.
Are you staying away from carbonated beverages and gassy foods? Here is a link to a suggested diet post Nissen. It might be worth looking at, and seeing if perhaps some of your bloating issues could be reduced by eating differently.www.upmc.com/HealthAtoZ/patienteducation/Documents/NissenFundoDiet.pdf

Be sure and stick around. There are many people here who've experienced what you're experiencing. Remember that most of the healing after this surgery takes 6 months, and the remainder of healing takes a full year. You are still in the beginning of your healing process. Try to be patient as your body adjusts to these changes and heals.
