I just had a hysteroscopic polypectomy on Friday. It's now Sunday and I have only light bleeding and minimal (if any) cramps -- which is great! However, I feel really bloated and feel like there is a excess gas in my body. I know that the doctor may have used carbon dioxide to inflate the uterus to look in it. Could I still have residual carbon dioxide in my body that I feel? MY stomach just feels very airy and its not really exiting in gas forms. Wondering if I should be calling my doctor or if I should not worry about it?
