Question upper abdominal bloating after surgery

I had laparoscopic surgery 3 days ago. My upper abdomen is terribly bloated and distented (and painful). Could this be trapped gas from the surgery? It is very unsightly and unpleasant. I do not hear many bowel sounds. Could this just be constipation (although I had a bowel movement yesterday). Gosh, I hope this goes away soon. Thanks

Re: upper abdominal bloating after surgery

If your abdomen was inflated for the procedure, then yes, that's what's going on. Walking will help dissipate it.
