Try walking. Slow & steady, it has helped me.
If you start to experience waves of pain and nausea (and possible throwing up), you might be having a blockage. If that does happen, stop eating/drinking until it passes, then resume with liquid for a few hours. If it continues for 6 or more hours, seek medical help.
Am I correct to assume your surgery was lapro? Sometimes people feel a build up of gas following such a surgery.
Maybe a call to your surgeon tomorrow if it continues.
Hope you are feeling better soon.
