How to deflate stomach after hysterectomy ?

I had my hysterectomy last Thursday. I m walking well now, passing gas and one bowel movement a day. Is there anything I can do to help deflate my stomache that makes me look like I m pregnant? I m not able to get into my regular pants. I believe the reason I m recovering quickly is due to cycling- I usually rode 70-100 miles a week. It will be another 4 weeks before I try and ride, however my stomach is very bloated! Thank you, Lily

Hi,

Your movement and exercise restricted due to operation.

For functional gas problem, you can take gelusil or simethicone containing any syrup for a few days.

Include more fiber in the diet like whole grain, wheat bran, apple etc.

Don't take gas-forming foods like cauliflower, cabbage etc.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
