Discuss irregular bowel with your surgeon and physician

This sounds unusual. Constipation tends to be related to narcotic analgesic usage while bloating may be due to irregular bowel flora following antibiotic usage. You may want to try some probiotics in addition to discussing this with your surgeon and physician.
