Notify surgeon: I'm sure your surgeon would want to be notified of these symptoms. Difficulty breathing after an operation is of concern and can be from a pulmonary embolism, blood loss or pneumonia. Postoperative abdominal discomfort is nonspecific but warrants an examination if severe or persistent. Diarrhea is also nonspecific but a C Diff infection is a possibility. You may be referred to the emergency room
