Suggest treatment for abdominal gas pain?

Monday I had cataract surgery on my left eye. That night, Tuesday and half of Wed i experienced extreme abdominal gas pains. Thursday I felt disoriented and last night I had four severe dizzy spells while in bed and also upon rising this morning. Is this a reaction to sedation given. Last year I had a glaucoma and cataract operation on the other eye and experienced none of this. Thank you.

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
Since last year you had glaucoma and cataract surgery and there were no symptoms means it is possible that the symptoms now may not be related to the eye surgery or sedation.
The dizziness spells, disorientation, gases in abdomen might have been due to flu or any other such problems and needs a proper clinical evaluation and examination by your Physician and investigated accordingly.
All this is more important in view of the recent surgery in the left eye as it can affect the outcome.
Please remain admitted till well investigated and well treated.
Also take an opinion of your Ophthalmic surgeon about the possible outcome.
I find this answer helpful
