Hi Gruiz, I just 11 days post surgery and I've not had the problem of nausea. We learned in class that if nausea is not associated with the anesthesia, medications, or Vitamins then it could be something more serious such as an obstruction (have you eating something you shouldn't), an ulcer, or low blood sugar.

If you are two weeks out and the nausea has just started in the last couple of days, I would suspect low blood sugar from not eating at regular times, calorie intake too low. What do you think it is? If you can't pinpoint one of these things I've listed, then call your surgeon or go to the ER. Going to the ER might be a good thing anyway as they can give you a drip that will make you feel better. Remember, you must eat (or drink) your calories to keep your blood sugar up and to feel better. Good luck and let us hear from you.

So bad. . I gag and gag. But I don't throw up. But my stomach is starting to hurt from gagging. I have nausea meds but they don't help much. My surgeon said to go to the ER tomorrow but I'm a go today. I need the IV since I'm not eating.

Are you getting in 64 oz. of mint tea? Probably what you feel is associated with dehydration. I gagged and gagged for about 4 days after surgery, but it subsided. You must be miserable. Going to the hospital is a good idea. They can start you on IV fluids and make sure you don't have something more serious going on. Feel better!

So I had my surgery this past Wednesday so I'm 5 days post op. I am experiencing that "why did I do this" feeling and I've been feeling hungry the past two days which have me fixated on food & all the junk I'm craving right now (ie. French fries and a burger) .. Have any of you experienced a feeling of hunger a few days after post op like I an right now... I'm in complete torture... I can't wait for the purée stage so I can at least have some squash and mashed potatoes (to curb my starch craving)

Yeah I experienced the same. . And I day why did I do this. But mostly because I'm battling nausea and dehydration. It will and hopefully get better. . I was suppose to start puree stage but because of my nausea I got backed up.

I had bouts of nausea for a few weeks post surgery until I figured out the culprit was cold Water. I had previously loved ice cold Water but now new tummy likes room temp, warm or hot fluids only; even today a little over 4 months out and cold stuff makes me feel slightly nauseous. Might not be the same for you but thought I'd mention it as this blog is what helped me figure out that was what was causing me to feel sick. :)
