Diane, It took me 3 or 4 weeks after my laproscopic surgery to get relief from the extreme bloating and worsened constipation. I did have to take ALOT of laxatives to clean my system out.
I believe it is from the bowel prep carbonated drink and then the air pumped into your belly for the surgery. I am extremely sensitive to trapped air from these things so I figured I would have problems. I can't normally tolerate carbonated beverages, so that alone was bad enough!
Hope this helps! JEAN
