After colon resection: What helps with severe gas?

Posted by karina1954 @karina1954, Aug 9, 2022

11 weeks since surgery, I was wondering if it's fairly common to have severe gas to the point that it hurts, so bad that it feels like your back is gonna break 😔

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Colorectal Cancer Support Group.



I am one week post sigmoidectomy with a stoma. I'm currently eating soup, crackers & gatorade. However, an hour after I eat, I get these horrible cramping gas pains that last about 10 minutes. Is this normal after this procedure? If so, is there any way to alleviate it? I want to be able to eat more things but the cramping pains after I eat are horrible…

Hi @fatfreelife1, I hope you saw the helpful reply from @bea1972

How are you doing? Has the cramping and gas improved?
