Thank you for the query.

As you have had 3 abdominal surgeries, there is very possible that inside your abdomen you have a lot of adhesions. Such adhesions can affect intestines and cause bowels obstruction. This should be ruled out at first with abdominal X-ray.
Your symptoms can be also caused by ovarian cyst, ovarian infection, diverticulitis, urinary tract infections, pregnancy (recent bleeding does not rule it out).
It is advisable for you to have abdominal ultrasound, full blood work, urine analysis, pregnancy test, transvaginal ultrasound.

Hope this will help.
