Motility disorder leading to excess gas?

One year old born with CDH.  Many procedures thereafter; ECHMO, Trach, Ladd Procedure, Nissen, G-tube.  History of reflux and excess gas which continued after Nissen. Recently the G-tube went to a GJ-tube.  Reflux continued.  Formula switched to Progestimil a few days ago and some improvement has been noticed.  Retching and reflux has reduced but still present.  Abdominal distention periodically present.  Prior constipation but isn't present with GJ-tube. The goal has been to treat for excess gas but thus far no diagnosis for the cause of the excess gas.  Could this be a motility disorder, maybe a pseudo obstruction?
