Gas pain: Gas pain for 10-14 days is normal after a robotic hysterectomy. You should have been taking simethicone 80-160 mg PO q 8 hours since your surgery to decrease pain.

See your doctor: This may be normal. You have been through quite a bit. If you have not had gas from your bottom and are still nauseated whenever you eat, see your doctor, it could also be constipation is you have not moved your bowels for several days after going back to a regular diet.

Gas and nausea: You really shouldn't have that much gas and nausea 2 weeks after having a hysterectomy. It would be different if you had surgery on your stomach, small or large intestines. You should go see your gynecologist.
