short of breath

My mom had an op a week ago - is it normal to be so short of breath after just walking to the bathroom after anaesthetics?

Hallo Heather
Not really - if she has chest pain with it, rather inform her doctor as soon as possible, she may have a pulmonary embolism or a post operative pneumonia.
