Doctors, mine included, seem to be of the opinion that any abdominal bloating after general anesthesia is due to the constipating effect of the anesthesia. However, I've come across plenty of message boards online where women are comparing notes, and a common complaint is that it's two weeks post-op and they're still bloated - after the bowels have begun moving again. I think there's something else going on. Do you have any other explanation? Say extra fluid in internal organs?
