I had appendicitis and got peritonitis when I was 21 years old. I'm going to try and spare you all of the details, but I had about numerous surgeries, one of which the doctors nicked my colon. I then received a colostomy bag. Which I had to keep for about 6 months before reversal. It was awful, but at least there was a light at the end of the tunnel.
About 6 years ago, I started to notice an extreme amount of gas. This gas is completely abnormal, constantly coming and foul smelling. I know this is gross, but there is no such thing as letting one slip. They all smell awful. In work situations or class, I am ridden with anxiety. I've had them slip out before, when I don't even feel the gas. It's embarrassing and disgusting.
As for my diet I eat really healthy. I have recently even tried going vegan and juicing to see if that will relieve my gas production, but alas, no such luck. I drink probiotics, I've even seen eastern doctors to try and get relief. I don't understand what is going on, doctors can't find anything wrong. I'm really at a loss, but I don't want to deal with this for the rest of my life. Does anyone know of any connection with the appendix or a colostomy reversal? Any recommendations of things I can try or what it could be? Aside from that, I am a healthy 30 year old male, I work out 4-5 days a week and am in the best shape of my life.
