My brother just had his ileostomy reversal on Thursday. He was very nauseous that night and was dry heaving overnight. Friday was better but he felt "funny" and was still nauseous and threw up some ice cream that night. Saturday seemed good until he sat down that night and proceeded to throw up all of the liquids he drank that day. He has had a few "regular" bowel movements (last night and this morning) and he doesn't have a fever, etc.
Is the vomiting/nausea the leftover effects from the anesthesia? Or does vomiting normally happen after a reversal since it takes time for the bowels to wake up? He's been walking around and moving quite a bit but still has some belly pain. From our experience in the last 6 months, we can't help but wonder if he has another leak or if there is a blockage, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
