Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
In the emergency surgery related to the abdominal area, in your case you have an ectopic pregnancy / pregnancy that occurs outside the uterus. The surgical process uses anesthesia / anesthesia to eliminate sensations so that there is no pain at the time of surgery. After surgery, the effects of anesthetics on various body systems still need to be monitored, including the digestive system. Recovery time is needed so that the body's organ system functions back to normal.
One of the signs that the digestive system is functioning again is a bowel movement such as flatus / flatulence / farting. So it is only recommended after farts can start eating solid foods or food as usual. At this time it is necessary to monitor whether there are eating complaints, whether after you return to eating normally after more than a week still can not defecate at all, appear bloated, nausea, vomiting. So far you do not need to worry because the digestive system is still recovering and there is no difficulty eating you experience.
However, if it is found that the difficulty of bowel movements is still ongoing, it is advisable to control your doctor related to your surgery to do a follow-up examination and management according to your condition. Maintain a regular and good eating pattern, routine control related to the surgical wound and during the recovery period, adequate rest, avoid activities that are too heavy.
