Hi lizadair, so sorry you are having problems. Gas seems to be the enemy of our j pouches. I use Beano all the time. Gas x never help me, though peppermint tea did give me some relief. If you cant expell gas on the toilet, try laying on your stomach and rocking slightly side to side. Also try laying on your left side. Since it's early days for you, you might want to wear a pantiliner when you try these things. I think we've all been through this, but it does get better. I know it's hell until then. Do try to try all these different things you've been told one at a time, or you will never know what works for you. Good luck to you. I hope you find some relief.
