The diagnosis

I’m now convinced that this pain I’m having is trapped carbon dioxide that was used to separate my organs for surgery. Most people get the pain in their neck or shoulder (which is why I had trouble locating similar stories), but with some people, it gets trapped in area of the rib cage.

The best way to move it out of your system is walking. That makes sense, because it’s always a lot worse after I sleep. So I’ll start walking today.

  1. There’s no question that “gas” can and does get “trapped” in various parts of the body. The old folks in my life have always suggested things like Coca Cola and apple vinegar to help reduce the gas. And then, yeah, a good fart always helps one feel better!
