SFISHOME, I think actual recovery time depends on the severity of the damage and your sensitivity.
I went GF 6 months ago, and I'm still fighting some symptoms - not sure if I've missed a gluten source or if it's just taking that long for my problems to clear up (I have gluten-caused eczema, it's about 75% better than it was!)
My daughter went GF at the same time - right after Christmas. She had nasty gut issues due to her sensitivity. She was probably totally normal within a month. She didn't have the bloat that you have though, so that may be a factor in your recovery.
I've heard that 6 weeks is the minimum to expect recovery. Good luck, stick with it!
