I had my surgeries back in february. The 1st was a resection then 1 week later I was back under the knife due to my colon not waking up and 1/3 of it was necrotic and perforated. This got me a temp ostomy in which I had multiple issues with abscesses. I have been on pain meds since february but I did find that I had nausea issues every morning. I was vomiting at least once a week and like I said only in the morning and my husband gets grossed out easily so it has been since January since we have had sex therefore I knew i wasn't pregnant. I found taking my meds with milk in the morning then laying down for a couple of hours helped the nausea and vomiting. I just had my ostomy reversed and they had to scrape my abdominal walls to rid me of the abscess and there were many adhesions (sp?). My surgery was 2 weeks ago now and I am still feeling crappy but that is to be expected since my surgery (per my doctor) was as involved and on the same level of a transplant due to the complications. My surgeon had another one of his assoc assist rather than a resident this time as well. My surgery took 4 hours but it took about 7 to get my pain under control (finally got the epidural). Since this surgery I have not had any nausea issues but since my bowels are waking up I find myself running to the bathroom lots at this time. I wonder if the AB's or the imodium was causing the nausea since those are the only 2 I am no longer taking.
