Short bowel syndrome

My mother underwent a surgery for intestinal bypass where her jejunal loops were anastamosed to the transverse colon side by side. We were told she will have a lot of loose motions initially. Its been 20 days now since her surgery and today she has not passed any motion.is this OK? Can she take some cremaffin? Does her condition also have constipation cause all these days she had loose motions? Please clarify I am confused for my mom. Is it a bad sign that she has not passed motion today? She is also having continuous pain in the abdomen for which she has been advised to take buscopan tablet.
