Hello!

Thank you for the query.

As you are after many abdominal surgeries it is advisable to rule out intestines obstruction first. Such symptoms can be caused by abdominal adhesion caused by previous surgeries. Such adhesions can cause bowel movements impede.
The other condition that is related to the surgery are intraabdominal abscesses. It should be ruled out as well. You should have abdominal ultrasound, full, blood work and abdominal X-ray.
Please do not neglect your symptoms as this can be urgent.

Hope this will help.
Regards.
