Sorry to hear about your distress as I am sure it is uncomfortable.

There are ways to prepare beans that lessen and/or eliminate the gas and you may want to look into and try those. One of the ways to do this is to discard the soaking water and cook in fresh water and then to also change the fresh water during the cooking process. Adding some kumbo to the cooking water may also help.

I have heard that adding either fennel seeds, fresh peppermint, fresh cilantro and fresh ginger may help but have no real experience with them.

The beans that are the easiest to digest are lentils, peas and adzuki beans so you may want to try those.

For those who are having discomfort, Bean-o can work if used properly, though there is a product out there that may work better and it is called, Say Yes To Beans..
