    Hi Donna, I'm 8 weeks post op and still have it. I've started taking charcoal tablets they are supposed to help. Google them. Also peppermint tea is good. A friend said windeez are good but haven't tried them. Good luck, it will get easier X

    I found peppermint capsules to be brilliant. Never had wind pain again after taking them religiously from day 1 post op. Took them for about two weeks just to be sure

    Hi Donna

    You need oil of peppermint, two or three drops in a glass of water a few times a day and you should be sorted hopefully.
