having trouble passing gas

I am 4 days post op complete hysterectomy and things have been going good except for one thing, I am having trouble passing gas and it won't come out . I have passed it a couple of times but the rest I can feel it popping inside of me and it won't come out. Today I did have my first bowel movement it was like diarrhea and pencil like that happened three times today. But what I am worried about is could this be a bowel obstruction or my bowels not working from.anesthesia. please help!!! I'm scared to death of this .

Hi Jenny
As long as you have had a BM thats good... regretfully 3 weeks on I am only just starting to pass wind like a trooper :-) Lots of short walks, and lots of water, they will come, then you will be moaning that they wont stop xxxx hugs xxxx

Re: having trouble passing gas

Thank you for the quick reply it just scares me that I can feel it in there and know it should be coming out. Have you had bowel movements yet and what did your doctor say about you not passing gas

Re: having trouble passing gas

yes back to regular BM now, although since I stopped the pain killers a couple of days ago, things have gone the other way a little :-( The gas Is due to us sitting /laying down so much, it gets trapped, hence the little walks, in the first week I made sure I got out of bed every hour, it did help.
