How To Get Rid Of Gas After Surgery
Endoscopic surgery??: Surgeons will add gas to the area to help visualize the site better. The gas will go away on it's own over time. I have not heard of any way to speed up the process. If you mean gas in the stomach, just take some antacids or gas-x.
How to get rid of gas pain after colon surgery? I've been walking a lot, but still a lot of trapped gas. How many days does it take to get 1st bm?
Few days: A few days usually. Remember you have not eaten for some days in between. If you are passing gas and no movement try taking a laxative to help with the first movement then it still maybe agee days until food goes thru ur system to get back to normal if you are not passing any gas maybe a bigger problem and you should get looked at asap.See 1 more doctor answer

Veins: Hemorrhoids are normal veins in the anal canal. They can become inflamed or enlarged with constipation or prolonged and repeated straining to have a bowel movement. Treated at home by avoiding constipation, drink plenty of liquids, eat more fiber (fruits, vegetables, Metamucil), avoid junk foods, warm bath soaks. See a surgeon if symptoms persist.
Combination therapy: Studies have generally shown that surgery alone doesn't work well. Keloids tend to come back. Combining treatments with surgery often show much better results. Depending on the location, we tend to use radiation treatments after surgical resection or injection of steroids after resection.See 1 more doctor answer
Double Chin: Double chin treatment may require liposuction, chin augmentation or modification of the bone of the chin. Sometimes, more than one of these is performed for the best result. A facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon can help determine the best treatment for you.See 2 more doctor answers
Gynecomastia: This could be the result of your body making too much estradiol and not enough testosteron. There are medications that can decrease the amount of estradiol in your body. You should seek evaluation by someone who specializes in male hormone balancing. Once this is corrected, surgery may or may not be needed depending JN the amount of breast tissue you have.
Many treatments....: There are many treatments for keloids: surgical removal, usually accompanied by steroid injection postoperatively, low dose radiation, and pressure (usually for earlobe keloids in combination with surgery.) we have had good luck with surgery and steroid injections and that is generally my recommended treatment. See a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the option in your case.See 1 more doctor answer
