DIAGNOSED WITH DD WHILE HAVING A HYSTERECTOMY 6 MONTHS AGO.  BEFORE HYSTERECTOMY SUFFERED WITH SEVERE BLOATING AND A DISTENDED ABDOMEN.  OBVIOUSLY FROM THE FEMALE ISSUES AND DD.  NOW 6 MONTHS LATER, A FLARE UP AND THE HUGE ABDOMEN (I LOOK 9 MONTHS PREGNANT) IS BACK.  IS THIS NORMAL WITH DD?  I SEE MY GASTRO DR ON THURSDAY.  AFRAID I HAVE STOMACH CANCER OR SOMETHING HORRIBLE LIKE THAT.  THE BLOATING IS UNBELIEVEABLE.  I AM A TINY PERSON.  NO FEVER OR BLEEDING, JUST THE PAIN AND TUMMY IS VERY SORE TO THE TOUCH.  RIGHT ABOVE MY BELLY BUTTON.  THE CONSTIPATION IS A CONSTANT BATTLE.  ANY IDEAS? 0:-(

    Bloating is normal for me. I too look pregnant. I read all the white stuff we eat turns to gas and if you are not passing stool you will get more gas. It is worrisome that you are constipated as that is not good. I get DD with no fever but still end up on antibiotics. So a trip the doctor or the hospital should be happening don't wait until Thursday but still definately go to gastro.

    Are you on liquids? That would be the first thing. Your doc or hospital can tell you what to take for constipation. I am in Canada and I have been told Miralax but I didn't need it but I do take Benefiber as a stool softener.

    I hope you are able to get some professional help with how to deal with this round of constipation. The gas will go on its own eventually.

    I have the same problem, I just cant seem to get rid of mine its constant, wake up with flattish tum, and grows throughout the day and under my ribs, I have started taking buscopan which has helped, I use laxido, and drink lots more water, im hoping this will start to help me. I think its just trial and era and finding something that helps you. It certainly gets you down. Good luck hope you find something that helps you
