Default Won't poop in litterbox post-surgery

Hey all,

A few weeks ago Lily had surgery to remove a lump on her abdomen. I'm glad to say that she is doing fine after her surgery. The only change I have seen is that she quit pooping in her litterbox. She still runs and pees on her wheel, but she won't poop on it or in her litterbox. Whenever I get her out of her cage, there's always poop under the liner far away from her box. Is this something that is just a little quirk she's developed from the surgery that she will always have, or will she eventually stop doing it? I've been moving the poop into her litterbox to encourage her to poop in it, but so far it hasn't worked. Any feedback is welcome! Thanks!
Rest in Peace my beautiful Lily
