Comment from: Rahman, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: August 21

I have too much gas problem specially bloating of my whole stomach since 23 years ago. I never feel hungry. The surface of my stomach always burns, and I could not sleep well. If I cannot sleep well the problem gets worse. I visited many physicians but did not get any improvement. I am still trying to get rid of this problem.

After I had laparoscopic gallbladder surgery and had air put in me, I had problems with gas, bloating, and a full feeling after I ate a small amount of food. I did not have it before.
