Gas pains after a c section

What has helped with gas pains after a c section? I had my surgery Thursday morning and have been taking gas pills and stool softeners since then. The pain is in my lower right rib cage and in my shoulders and neck. It is hard to breathe and I've been walking all day long but it is not getting any better. Does anybody have any recommendations on how to help ease the pain sooner? Sometimes it gets so bad I can't talk or catch my breath.
