First of all, I'm 8 months out from surgery and the right kidney area (where there is nothing anymore) is still kind of "bulgy" and tender. That I can deal with...don't like it but I can deal with it. What I can't deal with is the persistent gas that I have and have had since the surgery! I mean, it's BAD! If I get up from a chair...I toot...walk...toot...etc, etc. It is NOT controllable, and my husband is getting really tired of me looking at him when we are out some where, like HE just tooted instead of me! I know it sounds funny, but the humor is quickly going downhill. Has anyone else ever had this problem? I'm wondering if the bulge on my right side with the tenderness is maybe like a hernia and somehow my intestines have gotten twisted or something and is causing the gas situation.
I am watching my diet and trying to avoid gas producing food. Doesn't appear to matter what I eat. Right now I think the natural gas people are ready to lease mineral rights from me....
