Constipation After Hernia Surgery Treatment
Depends on severity: After abdominal surgery or just general anesthesia, the intestinal tract tends to be lethargic - called post-operative ileus. It typically takes only 3-5 days to begin passing gas (farting) and having bowel movements again. Other problems like bowel obstruction may intervene.

Is removing mesh aftet iguinal hernia repair is complicated?And what can be done to cure chronic pain after suegery?
Yes it is...: During the surgery, the testicular cord (of which the testicle is at the end of in the scrotum) is manipulated extensively. This can result in that uncomfortable feeling/pain of getting struck in the testicle.

3 months post op. Nissen/laprascopic, robotic, hiatal hernia repair. Recently experiencing painful, debilitating gas& diarrhea. Is this normal?
Not from the surgery: It is very unlikely that these current symptoms are related to your surgery. By far the most common cause of diarrhea is viral infection (enteritis, or gastroenteritis if it involves nausea/vomiting). With any diarrhea, weight loss, dehydration (feeling like you're going to pass out when standing), or fever lasting > 1 day would be cause for concern.
