Hi.. It would take a few days for the intestinal movements to normalise.. Passing flatus is a sign that there is no obstruction of the bowel.. The other symptoms  of obstruction include pain, vomiting. Report to the doctor if such symptoms develop. You may also have to report, if you develop fever.. Your present symptoms is not of concern and bowel movements would improve after a few days..
