It typically takes only 3-5 days to begin passing gas (farting) and having bowel movements again. Other problems like bowel obstruction may intervene.

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.

Otherwise these things tend to resolve. ...Read more
