Nauseaus after surgery

Hi guys, it's 5 days since I had surgery to remove endo and have my organs put back in the right place and I'm still feeling very nausous Ive not thrown up in a few days but I feel like it all the time especially when I've drank anything or taken my tablets, I'm on anti sickness tablets from the doctor but I can't get rid of this nausea and can't get a wink of sleep because of it. Any ideas great fully recieved.

Thankyou in advance

What painkillers are you on? That, or a hangover from the anaesthetic, or linked to the point in your cycle , or just from all the guddling around your intestines have had could all be causes.

I get severe nause and am on 3 anti emetics - cyclizine, stemetil , and odansetron. Tbh none really remove the nausea, just help stop me being sick. I have also tried ginger tea, wrist bands etc.i don't know if you have tried all those.

I also took pro and pre biotics.

I found acupuncture helped more than anything else. After one lapatotomy in 2007 I had no imp in nausea/vomiting 6 weeks post op and started acupuncture. I still go now tho, for financial reasons, not as often as I'd like :-(

I picked a traditional acupuncturist who specialises in endo and fertility .

May be worth a try.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thank you for your advice as it happens I also have a kidney infection so that plus the anasthetic explains a lot. Thanks again


Yes last time I had general anaesthetic I felt woozy and sick for days after. Just keep an eye on your temperature as vomiting plus temp might be sign of post op infection.



Thank you for replying I've seen my doctor it turns out I have a kidney infection too so that explains a double dose of nausea. Thanks again


Glad they've found the infection and you are getting treated. Hope you feel better soon x


Thank you feeling much better now x
