Your symptoms can be due to;

1) Subacute intestinal obstruction due to scarring caused by previous abdominal surgery.

2) Gallbladder disease (gallstones) / poorly functioning gall bladder

3) Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS; intestinal motility disorder)

4) Diverticulitis / Meckel's diverticulitis.

You may get a CT scan of abdomen, colonic transit time and HIDA scan for the ascertainment of the cause.

Following may help you;

1) Avoid

a) Cabbage

b) Beer

c) Legumes

d) Cheese

e) Beans

2) This may help;

a) Bismuth subsalicylate

b) Activated charcoal

c) Simethicone; (Maalox, Mylanta); Simethicone causes gas bubbles to break up.

d) Beano; contains an enzyme (alpha-galactosidase), which helps to breakdown certain complex carbohydrates.

All are available without prescription.

Avoid foods that appear to aggravate symptoms. These may include milk and dairy products, certain fruits or vegetables, whole grains, artificial sweeteners etc. But this is based on the personal observation for the aggravating food.

Discontinue the following if you do them;

1) gum chewing,

2) smoking,

3) drinking carbonated beverages, and

4) gulping food and liquids.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
