Question about behaviour after neutering

I'm getting Pepper neutered very soon and I would like some answers about what are the behaviour signs to look for after neutering?

It could any answers. More knowledge I have about doe rabbits and more experience I become a owner.

I had a look on the rabbits discussions and there is nothing about the behaviour after she's neutered.

Thanks Lorraine

There's really not any signs to look for post neutering. He should behave as he always did, but participate less in hormonal driven behaviors like marking and territoriality.

None of my animals have acted that differently after a spay or neuter. It can help eliminate hormonal behaviors such as spraying, and cage aggression. It can also improve their litter box habits. But it isn't an immediate thing, it takes some time for their hormone levels to decrease after the surgery. And from my experience, it doesn't change their actual personality.
