I WAS SUPPOSE TO HAVE A LAPROSCOPIC PRECEDURE FOR A PARTIAL HYSTERECTOMY AND WOKE UP AFTER AN 8 HOUR SURGERY TO FIND OUT I HAD A HYSTERECTOMY, MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF ADHESIONS REMOVED AND A BOWEL RESECTION DUE TO MY CROHNS. MY QUESTION IS THAT IT HAS BEEN 18 DAYS SINCE MY SURGERY AND STILL HAVE EXCESSIVE GAS, IS THIS NORMAL? I AM STILL ON PAIN MEDS SINCE MY INCISION IS SO LARGE. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD SURGERY AND THIS PROBLEM ALSO. I KNOW YOU HAVE GAS AFTER SURGERY BUT THIS IS GETTING RATHER ANNOYING.
