Bloated stomach. Have cystic fibrosis, enlarged spleen. Taken bloating medication. What can help?

Hi, I m looking for an answer to bad stomach bloating! In the morning my stomach is flat but begins to get worse during the day and is quite severe by night. I do have an enlarged spleen due to my cystic fibrosis so my stomach isnt completely flat anyways and have tried to get help from my doctors but any bloating tablets they have given me havnt made any difference at all and have said that there s not much more I can do. It s getting to a stage now that it s really bothering me and its really not nice to look at! Any help would be very appriciated! Thanks -Aileen (attached are photos from morning and even)

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
As you describe there is cystic fibrosis , and due to that you are having problem of bloating of stomach gradually upto evening and low in the morning.
Cystic fibrosis is an autosomal disease effecting lungs, pancreas, liver and intestines. It causes thick secrtions in effected regions and cause infections which are not cured easily.To some extent you are lucky that you are not effected in lungs there it is quite unbearable.
In your case by morning all the secretions getting evacuated down, so you can try to keep the intestines empty by having small meals in an intervals of few hours.
Avoid taking spices, junk foods, and oily foods, and also sour fruits.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
