Do I need surgery for CELIAC DISEASE and LACTOSE INTOLERANCE?

Resolved Question:

Hi there my name is Alanna. I will tell you a little about my self, i am 5ft 5inches 
133 lbs age 23 I  have  celiac disease ,lactose intolerance,soy allergy. My question for you is I can't pass GAS. The only way I can pass is if I go on all fours like a dog and stick my butt up them I can pas gas, but it is an excessive amount  like a air con-presser. I will spend 2-3 hours on this and then it builds back up in me within 1 hr. I avoid all gassy foods I eat no sugar, my diet is mostly chicken and  non-gassy vegetable with one serving of fruit a day. I take probiotics and flora 100 billion a day. PLEAS HELP is something wrong with my intestinal  track one more thing this has been going on for 5 years I'm in a lot of pain all the time. Why can't I pass gas like a normal person ? Do I need  surgery to pass gas?

- I go through this everyday

- I also get a lot of bubbling on my left side from under the rib to the hip bone 

- I seen many doctors who dismiss me or tell me to eat more fiber which I have it dose not help 

- I use digestive enzymes 

- also seen several naturopaths not much help  

- I done so many remedies peppermint tea, funnel seed you name it I probably done it

- I have had an x-ray which came back fine but no CT scan

I don't have a family doctor so I am bouncing around from doctor to doctor

Thank you I hope you guys can come up with some info this is ruining my life

Hi,
Thanks for providing the additional information.
I would suggest the following -
1. Get a stool test done to see whether you have any infection and also to see if you still have malabsorption.
2. In addition to the digestive enzymes, take simethicone also. Simethicone relieves flatulence.
3. Take high fiber diet to ease your bowel movements
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr.R.K
