Constipated after a hernia surgery
I wanted to know if it is normal to be constipated after a inginal hernia repair?  I had the open surgery yesterday and have a lot of bloating and hardness in my stomach today.

after surgeries due to the anesthesia and pain meds it slows down normal peristolsis in the intestinal tract and can cause severe constipation.  you probably need to use a stool softener or a laxative t initiate a good bowel movement.
