Sounds normal. It's the same thing that happened with me.
I was in 11 days post op.
My out put has never been solid. Semi solid maybe. But you may want to find a way to make it more liquid and easier to pass.
It was still sensitive around the whole area at six weeks. But at eight weeks I went back to work.
I'm close to a year and a half now and it's smooth sailing.
Sounds like you did the right thing. I know I did getting rid if it.
As for pushing gas out. Well. I can push out other stuff at times. Sometimes just bending over pushes stuff out. I noticed that in the shower as time went on.
Gas doesn't bother me. I have it. But if it bothers you watch what you eat. I'm gonna eat. So if gas is a byproduct I'll deal with it.
You're sore because alot was done in there. I was sore for a few months but it dissipates.
Welcome to a new or back to life. It's not perfect but it beats the hell out of fighting a pouch that won't agree to work with you.
I don't know if any of this is any help to you. But give it time. You seem happy. It definitely gets better. I'm proof it does. I forget about it most of the time now. Never in my mind did I think that I would. But I am very happy with it. Not in love with it but as I have said before. I love what it has done. Ended my struggles.
I wish you the best.
