Almost every time I use the bathroom I pass a large amount of gas. It sounds like a loud machine gun firing off. And I need to clean the toilet from the “spray”. It’s extremely embarrassing and also painful. I am desperate to find a solution. What has worked best for you?
Not eating any dairy, eggs , meats and fried stuff when I am outside . Gas for me is related to mostly what I've consumed in the last meal. Bananas, butters, breads , any low protein diet gives minimal to no gas. I only consume eggs and protein shakes at night and eggs smell like sulphur coming out and so do protein farts lol.
I know we blame gas on foods. Which is correct. I had the same painful problem. And cleaning the mess.
One thing I did notice. Never did before. But we all swallow air. Either when eating or not. It has to go somewhere. If you chew gum you will swallow air.
But if you don't chew gum Knock that off your list.
Just a thought. I may have said it before.
My remedy isn't perfect but it certainly helps. I use Super Enzymes by Now.
They help digest foods.
Excessive gas is sometimes a sign of SIBO. Mine was corrected by a couple of months of doxycycline. More recently folks have reported being treated for SIBO with Xifaxan, which is much more expensive but should usually have fewer side effects.
Thank you. This has been going on for a while. I don’t know much about sibo. Is that something I could have for a long time without knowing it? I just don’t know if what I’m experiencing is normal for having a j-pouch but it sucks.
SIBO can go on for a long time if untreated. What have you been doing to control the gas? Not all gas is SIBO.
