Yes, post operative illeus is common after abdominal surgeries. It will get better by day 4. I would recommend him to chew a gum as it helps in stimulating bowel. Another option is metoclopramide which is a prokinetic and you can discuss giving this drug with the treating doctor. But it should not be used for more than 2 to 3 days. The most effective option is mobility as he increases his mobility the bowel will start working.
Hope this helps.
