As they all probably have told you, walk, walk and keep walking as much as possible.
Can't remember exactly but I had surgery on a Monday and didn't have a bowel movement until Friday but was passing gas before that. Didn't have discomfort with it.

Sorry you are so uncomfy. I passed gas the next day but I was also up and walking the next day. I walked all over the place and had my first BM on day 2. I visited other patients. I also sat up in my bed and didn't lie down all the time.
Also lying on my left side helped.
I hope you can get things going soon!
