In brief: Side Effects

The answer to your questions depends on the side effects you are having.
Small bowel resection can affect stool transit time as well as nutrient absorption. Adhesions from any abdominal procedure may be a source of discomfort for some. I suggest you speak to your primary care doc about your symptoms to identify the most likely source of your symptoms. From there you can make a plan.
