Almost anything I eat makes me gasey. I was told I had IBS and put on Zelnorm (sp), but it affected my joints. Stopped taking it. Started eating Activia daily and it helped tremendously. I retired to take care of my husband, and got out of my regime of eating it everyday\. The gas is back. Trying to get back in routine.
Just over a year ago I had Nissen Fundoplication, which is a surgery for the lower esophageal sphincter. Basically the opening between my esophagus and my stomach never closed and I had battled constant reflux and regurgitation since I was a child. Due to the nature of this surgery, many people who have it cannot burp anymore....some will regain that ability after a time but I apparently am not one of those. Talk about gas issues. I must be very careful about what I eat and I never use a straw. I never chew gum and I NEVER NEVER NEVER drink carbonated beverages. This keeps the gas to a minimum and if I do suffer from it, I do certain yoga poses to help or if it gets really bad, Mylanta Gas to the rescue!
