Bloating: Bloating often indicates a gastrointestinal problem. If you were taking narcotic pain medications after surgery this could be one possible explanation. If the bloating does not resolve then consider seeing a GI specialist for an evaluation. Also consider starting birth control to prevent pregnancy until you are ready
