The apple in the toilet is gone, now the bathtub gurgles

Hi everyone. If you follow the threads you may remember me from my apple incident, where my 3 year old tried to flush an apple down the toilet. ;) Well, the apple is gone after 3 weeks (rotted enough to get pushed down).

I don't know if this is related, but now when I flush the toilet that had the apple in it, the bathtub in the same bathroom gurgles. :eek: I see nothing actually coming up, but it makes a loud gurling sound like something is about to come up. It actually started maybe a week after the apple went down, so I'm not positive that problem is related to the apple. The house is a new house, built in 2004, and we are the first owners, so hopefully it's not a big plumbing problem, is it? Any info or advice would be deeply appreciated. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

If the bathtub is gurguling, then somewhere in the entire drain line, there is a stoppage. It is very easy, Clean the main line.
I had the same problem(not with the apple) and I cleaned all the main line and the problem was gone.
