Nausea and Vomiting after surgery???!!! Nausea and Vomiting after surgery???!!!

Nausea and Vomiting after surgery???!!!

I am prone to getting sick after surgery. I had surgery back in May to have my thyroid removed and was sick for 3 days. I finally wanted to eat 4 days later.

I have CIN III. My gyno has done 3 LEEPS. I go back in, in October for a follow up and know it will still be bad. She has told me that I will need a hystorectomy. I am 36 about to be 37. I just married last July 07 and wanted to have a child, but doesn't look good.

I lost my 28 year old sister to cervical cancer in Nov. 07. So I understand this is very serious.

Any hints on nausea and vomiting after surgery????!!! I am so scared to be so sick after surgery.

Thank you,
Kerri

Tell them! They can give you meds. There is one called Phenergan, that is what I had after my last laparoscopy.

Definitely speak to your doc about it. I had the anti-nausea meds in my IV and it was so much easier than having to try swallowing them when you feel so ugh...

Make sure they know and they will give you anti-nausea meds in your IV. I had to have them and they worked great.

You anesthesiologist should know - they can do great combinations of meds to decrease it - I have the same problem - told my anesthetist and he did something right - I had NO nausea at all - a FIRST for me!!
Good luck!

all you have to do is let your anesthesiologist know that youve had a problem with this in the past and he will take good care of you

Phenergan makes me very dizzy. I can't take it, but it does work for nausea. Make sure you talk to your doctors to tell them, they can help you.

Tell them you're a puker, they will take care of you. I tell them every time now and I don't have a problem.

Nausea and Vomiting after surgery???!!!

Couple of things: I met with the anesthesiologist one week before surgery and told him my major concern was nausea. I had heard that Propofol is the least harsh of the anesthesias and luckily that's what they use. But I already knew (from this website) that the real problem is the pain med. My doctor prescribed the scopolamine patch (this is for severe motion sickness). You keep it behind your ear for three days (they put it on just before surgery).

HOWEVER, this was not enough for me. I awoke very nauseas patch and all! So they started the Zofran drip --- this is a miraculous anti nausea drug.
I did not throw up once!

I had an infection though so I needed pain meds longer than some folks and therefore had to have the Zofran every minute I was in the hospital, including the morning I left. So my advice is, get the patch, make sure you have the iv zofran (or anzimet) drip, remember that you may have to remind them of your problem so they replace the drip every 8 hours or whenever it runs out. This was the one thing I didn't know when I went in. I probably was unusually queasy, though, due to the infection but it doesn't matter. The drug worked!

Oh, and by the way, the anesthesiologist told me not to be in the least embarrassed about this -- he said many people tell him they'd rather have searing pain than nausea. Amen!

In my case, it was the morphine that made me sick after surgery. I requested something different in my drip this go round. You do have the option of asking for something different if you wish.
Some people are sensitive to the anesthesia.

Good luck!
