I had laparoscopic surgery 6 weeks ago for Crohn's. I had a resection and strictureplasty. My problem is that I still have problems drinking because I feel bloated and when I push myself to dring even small quantities I start burping for 10-20 minutes which makes me feel even weaker. I am on tube feeding but even that bothers me because I feel it like boiling inside. I have done some Xrays and a CT scan which showed that there is no obstruction but one doctor told me that these tests may not pick up everything. Has anybody experienced this problem?
