    He he my daughter and her friends who a physiotherapist visited on day one bypass I was in pain with the wind had walked the ward of ITU and was on my bed doubled up . She said she had seen this by Gillian Mckeith the poo lady’s and asked if I wanted to have a go , she also had worked as a physio on ITU so was good at judging what I could manage . , . I was desperate , and did this in front of my daughter who although very loving was crying with laughter ( she a nurse on the ITU ward I was on , Nurses have such black humour with their own ( I’m a nurse as well ) . So humour aside it worked I stood by the side of my ITU bed doing about 20 knee bend or gentle squats . I was poorly so you might be able to do more. This apparently moved the wind along . Then I climbed on to my ITU bed on all fours ( that’s amazing accomplishment i) put my bottom higher than my head and gently rocked back and forward and out the wind popped . At this stage my D was crying with laughter her friend was laughing too and I was just relived . When I went home I need to this but hadn’t told my husband what I was doing !!!!!!! He thought he got lucky , I don’t think so at 5 day post op , so might be wise to tell your partner so they don’t get their hopes up .

    Crying with laughter here!!!

    Maybe we should write a book with tips for WLS patients and get a cartoonist to draw Kimberly’s tip!

    It would be lovely to see you but you have to pace yourself and only do what doesn’t completely wipe you out.

    However, if the sun is shining and you fancy a few hours with like minded, supportive people then please do come along!

    Hi guys!

    Things are going well thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I weighed myself on Sunday and have lost 16lbs since starting the milk diet so things are looking good!!

    It’s all very much a learning curve right now. Telling the difference between wind, being a little bunged up and fullness has been a challenge but now the wind has passed it’s getting easier ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had a right giggle reading about Kimberly’s way to get rid of gas but it does work!!

    I would love to join you all at a group meeting but sadly I live in West Dorset and I’m 2hrs away ๐Ÿ™

    Do keep me informed of the groups and when and where they are as I’ll be in Portsmouth to have band fills and dietician appts over the next few months and would love to drop by and meet you all sometime ๐Ÿ˜€
