    For the past 3 days my stomach has been swelling up huge after my dinner. I only got camera into the stomach 3 months ago and i was up on tablets for irritation of stomach & bacertia in stomach. I am off them tablets now. I thought it was the carbs that was swelling me but this evening all i had was brussels, carrots and tuna? I am after swelling up, i swelled up so much last night i had to take bra off lol thats how bad it was

    You may have that bacteria back again - if its what it sounds like it can be resilient. I would go back to my GP if I was you

    It could be the carrots. I swell up with carrots and have bad wind!! Drives me potty so I looked into it and our bodies dong digest them as easily sometimes! Same with brussels! Try other veg, brocolli and cauliflower before going to the doctors

    Possibly! I find fizzy stuff and carrots, brussels and bread make me swell up! I just control what I have and I'm usually fine! I binge on carrots at the weekend because I can break wind where ever I like in my house :giggle:

    lol @ u 2 :D

    Maybe cut the carrots and sparkling water out and see what happens? If you stopped having the swelling when taking the tablets and have stopped them just a weekago and the swellings started again then maybe thats it? Can you not get them on prescription? xx

    are you having any quorn or more mushrooms than normally? Ive recently found out im intollerant to quorn as its fungus and creates or reacts with the bacteria in the gut causing me swelling, wind and cramps. orrible it is and i love quorn sausages
