I have always udes gas x after all surgeries, but in the hospital they always gave me Mylicon, they told me it worked better! I had 3 miscarriages years ago, but ny drs back then never wanted to find out why I miscarried allthe time. I had one son he is 25 now, and he was c section, I am sure I had trouble conceiving and carrying them due to adhesions at that time. I hope this next surgery helps you. Take care and good luck to you!!
