Women Surgery question...?

I had major knee surgery three weeks ago.. I was put under had nerve blockers and then a lot of medication. About a week later my leg got infected so I was on antibotics for another week... my period should have started right around now but hasn't... can the major surgery cause a late period? Help!?!?
