    Having read the previous post re: grumbling stomach and wind, it has got me thinking.......if I have read correctly when food is reintroduced your stomach cramps/wind/bloats and feels pretty rotten??
    My dielama is i am going on holiday on Fri 12th November, and i was planning on having a meal at the airport and a glass of wine (this is all i have worked towards and has kept me motivated for what will then be the past 11 weeks minus 4 days in Sept when i took a break of not eating) but i do not want to be sat on a long haul flight, gassing innocent passengers with my bloated stomach :eek: What would you advise?? Maybe just stick to protein, or a salad, or no veggies........blimey this needs some consideration before they eject me from an airline :D

    Enjoy your wine and meal and then have some colpermin and charcoal tablets :) If all else fails you can release your neighbour's oxygen mask for them :p

    I hope you dont mind me being so "brutal" but I dont think the wind is actually smelly (oh god, cringing at writing that). And believe me, when you let one go on a plane, nobody can hear it because of the pressure. I get inflight wind anyway and when I told my hubby about my windy flight, he never ever suspected.

    I've never had that experience when going back to food, just take it easy and dont go overboard with the meal and have some medication to hand just in case as advised by goreygirl

    Enjoy your holiday you deserve it :)

    Gorey Girl, what does charcoal tablets do? I thought they made you vomit? (I could take my own oxygen machine and mask as i am a respiratory specialist!).

    Thanks Hedgehog, you have given me hope with your statement that it didn't happen to you....and even though in my head i believe I could eat more than man v food, I am sure my stomach would have shrunk and a small meal will feel like a feast!

    They absorb excess wind - ideal for situations like you are talking about? Flatulence - Treatment - NHS Choices

    Where do you work? I worked ENT for a long time so miss suctioning..... the sense of accomplishment when you got up some of those plugs ;-)

    Thanks rumbly tums, that did make me laugh. It would be my luck that i would squeak just as everyone went quiet!! And for the record, you will admit many things on this forum that you would never dream of anywhere else :D
