The biggest gas problem is during the early months of recovery. Once things settle down, the gas decreases. Yes, some can burp, and that reduces the amount of bloating and gas. I was told I wouldn't be able to burp, but began little burps while still in the hospital.
The swelling of the wrap creates more bloating and doesn't allow the stomach to burp itself. Once healing progresses, the swelling decreases, and things get better. I have never found gas issues to be bad.
