No: Likely during surgery a catheter was used to drain your bladder. In 10-20% of cases a low grade bladder infection could cause such frequency symptoms. The incision and surgical wound could also give similar symptoms? Might need some antibiotics. A urine culture could sort this out.

Six weeks after an ovarian cyst removal surgery, is it normal to still feel the urge to pee more frequently?

Doubtful: I would have you checked for a urinary tract infection. Less likely but possible would be a complication of surgery or recurrent cyst.
