I would imagine the nausea will subside. There must be something going on that is causing it, either dehydration or a partial blockage. I can't imagine you're nauseous for no reason? immediately after surgery, It takes a moment for your bowel to move. There was a short time when I was in the hospital that everyone was telling me to eat, but I was worried it wasn't moving so I was scared to eat. When it starts moving, it may start off slow, but it will get to the point where it's annoying. For me, I remember I didn't have much capacity at first. I would go for a walk and have to get home to go. I was also nervous, didn't know how long I could hold it, didn't know if I could wait, I didn't know what to expect at all. You kind of have to feel it out. Some people adapt very quickly, others it takes longer. I think I ate fairly normally since take-down. I know other people have had complications though and ended up in the hospital longer than they imagined. My reconnection took an hour I think. I was out of the hospital 24 hours later. The stoma site was sore for me. I had some troubles with mine healing. I had a suture popping out that was very tender. Eventually it came out and the site healed up.
