Postop: Shortness of breath following recent surgery is always of concern and should be investigated by the attending surgeon. Possible serious issues would be blood loss anemia, pulmonary embolism,fluid retention due to heart,kidney or liver issues or other lung pathology. Nausea,diarrhea and fatigue are nonspecific unless very severe. Your surgeon will order appropriate tests and stool culture.
