What would cause a 78 y/o male post surg for LAR, to diurese?

My guess is that he was generously hydrated during(and before?) surgery. If his renal function is normal (and has no Hx of CHF), i would bet the surgical/pacu staff gave a good amount of fluids... (an intake 'hidden' from floor I&O's???)
