I am having a terrible time with bloating and gas. Regardless of what I eat I swell up like I am pregnant, sometimes it is so painful that I can't even stand up straight. I am lactose intolerant, and have used lactaid pills for years, so that I could eat some dairy products. I have tried eliminating dairy, garlic, peppers, onions, and have even tried a gluten free diet, nothing helps. I am so discouraged!Almost 3 years ago I had surgery for my reflux, a Nissen Fundalplication. I was told sometime back that my food moves very slowly down my esophogus, could this cause all this?
