Don't buns have gluten?  If you have celiac disease you should never have any gluten and even a small amount can have bad effects.

Go back to your GI doc and make sure there is not a partial blockage due to scar tissue.  This can happen with the surgery you had.  Also make sure this isn't a side effect of your antibiotic, call your pharmacy to find out.
