Good grief...nothing like the doctors stirring things up big time! Hope you are soon feeling much better.

Gas ~~ the best things I can suggest are walking as much as you comfortably can and taking a product such as Phazyme (generic name: symethicone) or Gax-X.

Side sleeping ~~ a pillow that is soft and easily bunched to tuck under and against your tummy and a nice firm one to put between your knees or, if you sleep with one knee drawn up, under that upper knee.

I suggest that you visit our Menopause Oasis for lots of suggestions on how to cope with the varying symptoms that you may be experiencing due to your sudden lack of female hormones.

Please know that you are welcome here anytime ~ to ask questions, to vent (it really does help!), to share experiences, or to just hang out with other women who understand and care....
