Intestinal Damage ?

Immediately after Cyberknife in June 2017, I was producing enormous quantities of totally ODORLESS intestinal Gas.It was as though I was swallowing many litres of air; which I wasn't. The Doctor expected these short term symptoms to die down, but although they are 60% of the spectacular postoperative symptoms, they are still uncomfortable, (and of course embarrassing), especially at night. Is this (permanent) damage to the intestines, and have others experienced it ?

I'm sorry, but I just can't help it - here's a story: A little old lady (LOL) goes into a doctors office: LOL: Doctor, I have a problem - I pass gas every few minutes. In fact I've passed gas several times since I've been in here and IT MAKES NO SOUND AND HAS NO ODOR. DOC: Take these pills for two weeks and then come back and see me. Two weeks later: LOL: DOCTOR!!! THOSE PILLS YOU GAVE ME MAKE MY GAS SMELL TERRIBLE! DOC: OK. We've fixed your nose. Now lets work on your ears.
