ANTI-nausea meds for surgery

From everyone I talk to that has had abdominal surgery, they have all said that you need to insist on getting anti-nausea meds. Why isn't this a standard procedure?? why would they let some poor unknowing people slip by (that didn't know to ask) wake up with vomiting??? My doctor told me that "if i needed it, they would have it available after surgery " But all my gf's say "ASK the anestheisologist for it prior to)
It can't be that much of an added expense! Why would they risk stitches being stretched with the strain of retching???!!!! What's wrong with these doctors? :burning:
Sorry for the rant, but I think my hormones are off

ANTI-nausea meds for surgery

I don't know but my anestheisologist gave me anti-nausea before surgery. A few minutes after I got to the surgery prep room.

Get Well Soon!

ANTI-nausea meds for surgery

I don't know the answer either. My anestheisologist placed an anti-nausea patch behind my ear before sugery due to my past experience with nausea after surgery. It worked very well.

I think it is because we all are different and some people dont have problems with nausea and anesthia. I didn't want to take any chances and made SURE that they put something in the "cocktail" to prevent nausea when I woke up. I let the anestheisologist know that this one probably my biggest fear about the whole thing. And whatever he put in there did the trick just fine.

Good luck to you and all the other soon to be princesses!

ANTI-nausea meds for surgery

i had anti nausea meds with surgery and it was just an in case situation. They didn't want me vomiting after the surgery even know i think i would be ok cause i had surgeries before without the meds. The give u pain meds in surgery which can cause stomach upset especially on an empty stomach which i think most people have pre-op. I do know people whom react to the anest. and do vomit and have belly upset. If your doc doesn't want u to take the meds and u r not sure why ask him and if u want the meds tell him. it is his job to make sure you r happy with the surgery procedure and that all goes well.

The dr gave me percocet in the hospital and sent me home with a script. I never got it filled cause the pain was tolerable and i just took ibuprofen/advil for pain. they told me to take it once a day at least. Ask your doc what he has in store for u and the pain meds. During surgery the doc gave me this pain me along with another me which was called phenergan. This med is a muscle relaxer and a anti-nausea med so 2 good things in 1. Anyway hope this has helped a bit. If you need to chat feel free to pm me.

ANTI-nausea meds for surgery

I agree, they should make it standard. Who knows. I make it very clear to my anesthesiologist that I get nauseous and needs something to help with it. I've been given it after the fact and it doesnt help as much as having it given prior to the surgery. Good luck! Stephanie

ANTI-nausea meds for surgery

I waited until after the surgery as I wanted to take as little additional medication as possible...unless you have a HISTORY of getting nauseus asking for a shot of medication directly into an IV line should take effect in minutes or less, so I was willing to wait. My nurses said that most people say "I feel nauseus" several times over a long period before they ever vomit and meds can be given. I did end up asking for the med right after surgery, but it took effect and I felt fine.
