Walking: Gas, bloating and constipation are very common after surgery. We encourage moving around and walking. This helps stimulate the intestines to start moving again after being put to sleep with anesthesia. You should be able to pass gas still. If you are not able to pass gas then prompt evaluation by your surgeon is warranted.
