More bloating and gas after a resection?

I had a surgery for a resection in my ileum last year.

I have no more strictures symptoms, and take stelara as a maintenance treatment, but I notice I still have A LOT of bloating and gas with sometimes diarrhea.

My doctors suggest courses of rifaximin, but it’s less effective than before and it stop working few days after I finish the course.

Is it normal for some reasons like my intestine cannot digest some oily foods etc?..

Have you had similar symptoms after your resection, and do you have long term solutions? (Diets or drugs)
My docs suggested to take a quarter of questran before lunch and dinner to avoid D.

Do you have any experience with this? Does questran help for bloating and gas too?
