In brief: Unusual

Should see and ask your surgeon.
Fluid intraperitoneally may just be from fluid (irrigation) used during surgery . But other possibilities include bile leak or bleeding or pancreatitis, if you are not improving, get followup and find out what the ascites is and why you have it- underlying liver disease , heart failure etc.

It is possible if you developed it.
You surgeon needs to find why. Is it cardiac, liver, kidneys, inflammation, etc. Talk to your surgeon.
