Trapped wind after eating.

Go green sue

Recommended Posts

Hi, I had the body and tail of my pancreas removed 7 weeks ago. Apart from an infected haematoma for which I still have a drain I am doing quite well. My appetite has returned and I seem to have got to grips with my creon dose.

However, I am ok after breakfast but as the day wears on when I eat I find that afterwards I get pain in my chest and through to my back which feels like trapped wind and it can last for quite a while.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so how do you deal with it.

Love to everybody on the site Sue xx

Hi Sue,

Glad to hear you are doing well.Are you taking an anti acid such as Omperazole, my husband finds it really helps providing he takes it before his breakfast and dinner? He also has gaviscon after everything he eats. He uses loads, but our doctors have been happy to prescribe it,

Hi Sue,

If it is trapped wind, taking some peppermint oil capsules might well help this. Colpermin they are called. However, do mention this to your consultant if it does not settle down, and also, try increasing your creon dose.

Email us on support@ if you need any further information.

Kind regards,

Jeni, Support Team.
