Thanks for your query.

The symptoms what you describe could be due to 2 possibilities:

1) Post operative Infection: The onset of these sylptoms after surgery is due to post operative infection. Infection might have occurred during laparoscopy or after that.

2) Operative complication: Any injury to bowels might have caused these symptoms. Injury is less likely out because all relevant investigations have been done to check for injury and other associated complications and are negative.

Hence I believe, the symptoms you are describing are due to postoperative infection. This leads to inflammation of XXXXXXX organs and cause these symptoms.

I advise you to visit a physician and get blood test (including blood culture) to check the infection & causative organisms. You can take medicines based on the blood culture reports.

I hope I answered your query. I would be glad to answer if any more queries.
