Sick after surgery???

I had knee surgery last monday Nov 17. I was fine the first day just a little drowsy which is to be expected but ever since then I have been really nauseas. I only got sick twice on tuesday nite but have the nauseas feeling.. I am fine when I eat but about 30-40 mins afterwards I feel sick. I already contacted my orthos office & they told me to stay on liquids. I have an appt monday but I was just curious if this has happened to anyone else.. and if so, what did you do to help? I hate this feeling.. Thanks.. I appreciate it.

Are you taking the narcotic pain meds and if so what are they? Often these are what make you feel nauseous, and if it doesn't get better then you need to take phenegran with them. Otherwise it could just be your body's reaction to the anesthesia.

I was taking vidoin but I havent taken any since wednesday since my doc office told me to stop taking them. My mom gave me some reglan that is suppost to help for throwing up & if your nauseas. My mom thinks it is acid because I have gotten that before but I dont know any remedies. I dont know what it is.

If you meant acid reflux then you could try pepcid ac or zantax which you can get at any local drugstore. I would get the extra strength. Try laying with a heating pad on your tummy sometimes the warmth can help with the nauseous feeling.
