I had a total colectomy in 1992. The older I get, the more gas I have. I get so embarrrassed when I am in a meeting at work or talking with someone and my abdomen is louder than me. I have pains and severe bloating. GasX is not always helpful. I am seeing my GI in a couple of weeks and in the past he has not been very helpful with this situation. I take a probiotic and prilosec daily. Any suggestions?
