Dachshund > Back Surgery Worries

My 5 year old, long-haired wiener boy, Templeton, had two herniated disks surgically repaired 6 days ago. He's been home three days. The stress is going to kill me! He's almost 20 lbs, and I have to carry him to take him outside. And everywhere else. He has partial control of his bladder. He had not been crate trained before, so he has been going ballistic every time I leave him in the kennel. I don't know what to do since I'm told to keep him quiet. When does a bowel movement happen? Do I need to help him with that like I've had to do with the expressing of his bladder? When does it get the tiniest bit easier? I'm madly in love with him and he's worth it but I need some more help with answers. Anyone, please?
