You had gallbladder
surgery three years ago and probably this
was done through laparoscopic route and not open surgery.
If the surgery was difficult due to location of the gallbladder
or too much inflammation around , it is possible to develop
some adhesions or scar tissue around that area. There is a
part of the colon
called the hepatic flexure that is close to the
. If there is some kinking , gas can get trapped in that area
and give you the bubbles. When you change your position the
gas moves and you may get relief. Unless the problem is major
you really don't need another surgery. Try to take simethacone
containing pills that may help to break up the gas bubbles.
Make sure you drink enough water also. You might consider
getting an x-ray of your colon (Barium Enema
) to see the
shape of the colon.
I wish you well.
