Am I normal?

Hi, so uh not sure if this is the best place to ask but I just recently had a back surgery. Not sure if I would call it a back surgery but it was just above my butt. There was this small pimple like thing that got a little bloody over the past few weeks and the doctor said that I needed surgery to remove that part or it would grow and affect my body. For the surgery I went along with the Spinal anesthesia and it went relatively well for the most part. The surgery was a success and now I'm at home. This is the part where I had the most trouble with. When I came home, I suddenly had the urge to sleep and I had a lack of appetite, and still do. I don't have a lot of energy to do anything but to stay on the bed. I also think I'm constipated. So far I've drank a lot of fluids like water. Is this normal? Will I be alive?

P.S: Sorry for my horrible English
