    Splenic Flexure Syndrome support
    An_251476 posted:
    I have been diagnosed with Splenic Flexure Syndrome and found that a big culprit of my pain was dairy products. After cutting out all dairy, I still sometimes have the horrible pain in my left side. The pain is so bad I can't sleep and it usually hits me at night.

    I had a colonoscopy yesterday and didn't seem to have much discomfort from gas right after it but suffered the horrible trapped gas pain of SFS last night and all day today as well.

    Does anyone know how long after a colonoscopy the gas and bloating will last?
