- Status post operative-
- - Exaggerated left colonic gas shadow

HI,
The gas shadow is in the left side of colon. Gas formation and bloating can aggravate the matter. Dietary modification, eating a bland diet, avoiding spicy foods and alcohol can help. Degassing medications can also help. Need for surgery is less likely. Consult your Doctor for a thorough evaluation.
Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
