      Hi! So sorry to hear you're feeling poorly. I'm assuming your doctor knows how you feel and it's nothing serious?

      Hot tea was helpful to me. Gas X strips as well. My stomach was poofy for some time. 

      The milk you mentioned made me think of my first few days out - I was suffering from lots of intestinal distress until I quit liquid milk. I developed lactose intolerance from the surgery which has since resolved itself. My intestines were immediately thankful and calmed down a lot. You might want to experiment and make sure that's not the case for you.

      CZJ, I have to mirror what Jen said above. Keep trying different things till you find what works for you. I found walking was about the only thing that helped with my gas pain. If all else fells keep nagging your surgical team.
