It could be trapped gas. I had gas for a couple of weeks post-op. Never hesitate to call your surgeon if you are concerned. Make sure you are walking, drinking plenty of water, and that you are not running a fever.

Just wanted to say I'm sorry you are going through this. If it's not better, I'd call the surgeon.
