You're obviously having crank case pressure issues.
If it's doing that you can usually say severe ring problem or a hole in the piston.
Is it blowing any smoke? Is it still running smooth and have the same power?
I just find it strange that this happened straight after changing the oil.

before this last time how long ago did you change the oil. did you keep the same brand of oil. it is possible if you used a cheaper brand of oil that the detergent levels in it have basically f@*!d your engine. i have seen this on a whole fleet of vehicles before. i'd change the oil again for a good 20/50w oil. remove the oil filter and cut it open. check for a grey sludge in the element. if there is your in trouble
