Hi,

My relative just had a tracheotomy. Right after the operation, he complains about stomach discomfort such as feeling full, farting a lot, and pain under the last rib cage and navel area.

He is worried that there is some wrong with the operation.

Does any one have any insight on this?

What is the worst can happen?

thank you

I had a stomach tube put in and had real bad problems with gas for the first three days, after that it got better quickly.

Air sometimes gets trapped in an operation. It should dissipate with a very gentle massage.

Thank you everyone for reply.

He is getting better now in that aspect.

He felt better after the tracheotomy that removed the pain that was caused by having a pipe in the throat.

But discomfort and pain from his body is killing his spirit. :(
