Time : Your body may need time to adjust to the surgey. Or it may be the medication you are taking after surgery causing your symptoms. See your doctor.

Will certain foods I eat while i'm breastfeeding cause my baby to get gas?

Yes: Some foods in a mother's diet seem to be linked with increased fussiness or gas in their babies. Some culprits seem to be dairy, brussel sprouts, legumes and ither cruciferous veggies. The only way to see if this makes a difference in your baby is to try cutting one or more of these foods out of your diet and observing anh changes in your baby.

Is it painful for babies to have gas?
5 doctor answers • 6 doctors weighed in

No: I don't think so. Passing gas is a part of life, and really-- it doesn't hurt. I can surprise and upset a baby because it might feel "weird", but i don't think it honestly hurts. Reassurance and humor ("you sound like daddy!") are the best "cures" for gas. Babies who continue to fuss with gas usually have parents who are worried about gas. Babies can tell when you're worried, and they'll worry too.

After I had a hysterectomy, I was told that I had adenomyosis. Is that different from endometriosis?

Yes it is different: Adenomyosis is when there are glands from the lining of the uterus up inside the wall of the uterus. Endometriosis is when these cells and glands from the lining of the uterus are growing outside the uterus. Adenomyosis is a common cause of heavy periods.

Fecal impaction: Is a build up of hard stool that will not come out, excessive gas can be associated with many other bowel problems or from something you ate, if you are worried see your doc today.
