Thanks for the replies, I appreciate the response.

I don’t eat bread, so cannot cut that out, and have tried every type of food combination and elimination going.

I have not had a second opinion, as Mr Somers is such a renown surgeon, but do now have someone recommended to ask for a referral to,having had a reply from a patient with the same problem, and will see if a second opinion differs.

I understand what you say Paul, and Mr Somers did say there is no guarantee a reversal would solve the problem, but it may be that the new ‘plumbing’ itself is causing the difficulties, and the fact that the food is not being absorbed from the stomach can be what is causing the build up of gas, clearly the problem was caused by the bypass, which is why he feels reversal to be an option.

I too have met many people who pass gas constantly, and I have never had that problem, mine is building up through the day in a rock hard tummy, and will not pass until the morning, which is a bit different, and hard to live with.
