4 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
Although the risk is small after any abdominal surgery, there is risk of intestinal obstruction due to formation of adhesions in the peritoneal cavity ( abdominal cavity ).

In brief: Maybe
Any abdominal surgery, even an appendectomy poses some long term risk of adhesion formation and possible bowel obstruction any time in the future.
Of course the benefits of a needed surgery outweigh the risk of obstruction in nearly all cases.
