Passing gas is like pooping. It’s not how long it takes, it’s how much pressure you exert to do it. If you’re constipated it can lead to problems during the initial time after surgery. Dr Towfigh advised pushing a pillow against the abdomen while doing it to reduce the outward pressure. Those corsets really help as well. You can sort of tell. If you feel any abdominal pain while farting then that should be a warning.
