I had gastric bypass surgery along with removal of my gallbladder on February 26, 2013. I felt great in the hospital due to use of morphine, although returning home was a much different story.

My husband went to the pharmacy to fill my prescriptions for hydrocodone and an acid reducer. I had horrible gas pains for days after the surgery. I used my essential oils reference guide and looked up gas pains. I used oils that I had on hand, which were PanAway, Peppermint, Frankincense, Balsam Fir, Deep Relief, and Valerian.

My husband applied these oils to my stomach multiple times a day, avoiding any suture sites. As soon as he began applying the oils, my belly began grumbling and making noises. Within a day, I began passing gas and feeling much more comfortable, within two days, my gas pain was completely gone.

I also felt sick to my stomach constantly after coming home. I called the surgeon and he called in a prescription for me. I used it, but it made me very groggy, to the point of where I would fall asleep almost as soon as I took it. I began to realize that as soon as I woke up, I was still feeling very sick to my stomach.

I looked up nausea in the reference guide and used DiGize, Peppermint, Ginger, Lavender, and M-Grain (again, using the oils suggested that I had on hand). My husband again applied all of these to my belly multiple times a day. Within two applications the nausea was gone and I was up picking up the house and doing the dishes.

I am still using the oils for nausea because I do not want that feeling to come back and I am diffusing all of those oils so I am getting a double dose. I still feel great and it is only 6 days after my surgeries!! These oils truly are amazing!! I told my husband that I wished we never even filled any of my prescriptions because it was a huge waste of money!!!
