Ironman bike - swollen stomach - Please Help!!!!

Hi, can anyone please help, I am attempting an Ironman in 3 weeks having failed a previous attempt 3 years ago as my stomach swelled (looked 8 mths pregnant!) after the bike which I think was wind but still very painful. Tried 100 miles on bike yesterday and same thing happened can anyone please offer any advice on how to overcome this problem, I don't think I am the only one who suffers from this? MT A :

    what is your nutrition strategy, and is your bike position one you are comfortable with? it sounds like you are either swallowing air or getting a stomach reaction to something.

    I'm with ris, it's probably nutrition/hydration.
