It's all about your mindset at this point, you already had the operation. Everything has its ups and downs. You are going to have gas. Definitely re-read all of the advice given above and take it seriously. We have all lived through this and are here to help, but you have to be willing to listen. Theres a ranting section if thats what you are here for and some make good use of it. I choose not to complain, my ostomy & j pouch have saved my life.
