Day Six Post Colostomy Reversal

Well I want to start by thanking this community for all of the information I have read during the past three months.   I had emergency surgery on June 10 for ruptured colon.   Ended up with temp colostomy and hernia.  I just had my reversal surgery and hernia repair on 9/19/17 and I am still in hospital waiting on first BM.  The question I had, I am passing tons of gas and just started soft foods last night…. How long after I start eating will I have first bm?  Also, this surgery was more painful than my emergency surgery in June…. I think because of the hernia repair… Any other folks that have had reversal and hernia repair feel it is a more painful procedure?  Thanks
