Had an abortion, unable to pass bowels after that. Normal post surgery symptom?

Hi I recently had an abortion two days ago (7weeks) and I haven t been able to remove my bowel since then(my lower stomach has a slight bulge) but ive been eating totally fine,hungry and all. I think i went into shock most of the procedure due to taking no high volume of pain medication . I don t want to think the worst but how normal is that for women post-surgical procedure?

It is common post surgery, as due to the effect of anesthesia drugs, secondly due to less mobility following surgery, so the bowel movements reduce.
Nothing to worry, you can have lactulose syrup or isabgol, warm water intake for the evacuation of bowel, also increase fruits and green vegetables intake and also walk after having your meals, that will help you regain the bowel movements. If this does not help you you ca consult your doctor for further advice.
