Heat, rest.: It is common to have retained air after colonoscopy despite attempts to remove as much as possible. Turning from left side to right side and back while lying down will often help the air to pass to the rectum allowing release. A heating pad on the abdomen can help ease the discomfort. ...Read more

Infection? Dietary?: Since we don't digest the fiber we eat, intestinal bacteria will feed on it and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason could be lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) she eats. Again, bacteria will feed on it. Drinking lactose-free milk and eating less fiber, should decrease gas. Intestinal infections, or using antibiotics, can also cause gas and loose stools. ...Read more

Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more
