I would need more information about the actual surgery and events around the surgery to give a proper answer. If a urinary catheter was placed, it could cause some discomfort after removal. If the blood pressure was low for a while or not enough fluids given to make up for the losses, it could hurt the kidneys and lead to decreased urine output. Some surgeries result in significant blood loss or entail clamping the blood vessels that supply the kidneys and that could cause injury to the kidneys also. Would suggest discussing with primary doctor or surgeon immediately.
