Hi and welcome,
Did you see a regular MD or a gastroenterologist? I saw so many MDs and they didn't help me at all. My stomach was is so bloated too! I know if you eat a lot of fiber it will bloat your stomach but I would really see a GI doctor. They will be able to help you. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I am also sorry to hear about your mother. If you see a GI doctor they can diagnose what is wrong and give you the proper treatment so you won't have to feel this way any longer. I went yesterday and saw one. Hope this helps some. Take care.
