Post-Surgical Instructions-Nausea and Vomiting
Rarely, patients will experience nausea and/or vomiting as a side effect of the anesthetic or prescription pain medication. This typically resolves quickly. Supportive care is often all that is necessary. Dr. Maranon recommends 7Up or Ginger ale, and asks that patients avoid dairy products or solid foods until their symptoms improve. Even though nausea and vomiting can be uncomfortable and distressing, they fortunately are self limiting. These conditions typically improve after a few hours without treatment. If the symptoms persist or if you have any questions, contact Dr. Maranon as soon as possible.
