Ileus is a fairly common problem after surgery caused by slowed peristalsis/decreased GI motility from activation of inhibitory reflexes, release of inflammatory mediators, decreased mobility, decreased fluid intake, and particularly worsened by narcotic (opioid) use for pain control. Symptoms of ileus include abdominal distention, pain, bloating, cessation of bowel movements, absence of flatus, nausea, vomiting. This can be confirmed by examination and/or a flat plate x-ray of the abdomen.

Since water contains no callories, it does not become fat, it stays as water and circulates to where it is needed. Excess water will passed in the urine. There are times when the body holds on to more water, and this can lead to a temporary increase in weight. ...Read more

The best thing to do is get aerobically fit and avoid greasy / salty / sugary foods that folks tend to overeat -- soon these will become unpleasant for you.
