In the surgery the part which has cancer is removed and it is anastomosed to the part which is normal. So there will be no problem in passing gas or bowel movements

every evening after dinner, I suffer from frequent passing of gas and more recently the gas has been particularly odorous. I have not changed any of my eating habits recently. What could be the cause and how can I relieve this . So far I have tried a Beano product (enzymes) before dinner and phazyme (simethicone) after dinner, and it seemed to help one time, but the next evening did not help at all.

Last Friday I woke up with gas pains. Needless to say, it smelled like rotten eggs when passed. Woke up again later that morning, and had bad diarrhea. Went 3 times, then the diarrhea went away. Haven t had diarrhea since then, but I m still left with a few symptoms. 1.) a hungry feeling (feels like its gunna growl but never does) Doesn t always go away after I eat but most of the time it does.... 2.) Normal stools but I feel like I have the urge to go. 3.) Gassy and burping more than usual. 4.) Occasional nausea along with the emptiness. My mom has IBS and so does her sister. Could it be that? Food poisoning? A virus? I have had no fever, or blood in my stools either.

I experience gas upon rising. It is okay as long as i way down. Once i get up and start moving around i start belching and feel pressure in my throat. It gets worse after eating to the point that it causes skipped beats. As bad as the gas or pressure is i get relief as soon as i lay down. Had stents put in in June of this year. Everything is functioning properly and most everything is completely clean except for the one artery which was plugged. No reason for the plug. Good cholesterol. No history or heart disease. Had pulmonary embolism in 1996. Knee surgery. What could be wrong per the gas and belching and the skipped beats?

i was diagnosed with polyhydramnios at 32 weeks. highest ive measured is 34-36cm. i was sent for genetic testing and one soft marker was found....echogenic foci. all of my early screening tests were negative and put me at 1:1100 for DS but with the soft marker im now at 1:550. they also mentioned that it appears she has a small chin in the ultrasound. should i be prepared for my daughter to have down syndrome or should i not worry since no other markers or abnormalities were found?
