In brief: Common problems

Back pain is common after abdominal surgery due to position on the operating table.
Problems with bowel movements are also common, due to pain meds and stress of surgical procedure and general anesthesia. These should all slowly get better within 6-12 weeks after the operation. There is of course high variability Amon individuals. Hope this helps!
