Welcome to the Healing Well Wrapped Club! There are quite a few wrapped friends here, and hopefully others will be by to share their own experiences and support. I had the surgery a little over four years ago, and I can say I never have had any trouble with gas bloat. I had a couple glasses of champagne last summer to celebrate my son's engagement, and that created bloat, but I can drink soda without a problem.
Have you discussed this issue with your surgeon? It sounds like your wrap may be too tight. Has your surgeon ever considered stretching/dilating it to loosen it a bit?
At your stage, swelling is a non issue, so it seems to me that the bloating problem should have subsided. It's normal to have an occasional bloating issue, but not a daily occurrence.
Have you ever gotten a second opinion? It might be time to do that.
Glad you've joined us!
