In brief: No.

Sometimes narcotics (pain medications) can cause urine retention (difficulty starting urination).
Other problems can arise if you had a catheter placed - i.e. Urinary tract infections. Bottom line, talk to your doctor about this.

If you mean your urine stream, it can be from a foley catheter, it can be from narcotic pain meds, it can be from dehydration.
Please speak with your surgeon.
