I had one yesterday (it was normal) and after I got home I have been so nauseous and have thrown up a few times and I am still feeling like hell today. Is this normal?

Could be the anesthesia, drink pleanty of fluids.  Maybe call the place back and let them know you aren't doing well

Ya that's what I am thinking and afraid of. I have surgery next week (not related) and it has me scared that its going to be worse since they put me under longer.

Just make sure you tell them that you get sick.  Ask for a "Scope" patch before hand and ask for anti-naseua pills for afterwards.

I had one at the same time as a colonoscopy so I was put completely under. I didnt have any trouble after it though. Id give them a call, its probably due to the anesthesia they gave you.

It's a patch they put behind the ear.  You keep it on for 2-3 days post op, it helps with post surgical nausea.  It works like a charm.  I get that after all my surgeries.

Oh ok, I will have to ask. I've been put under a few times before but never had any side effects till this time.

Anesthesiologists all have a "favored" form of anesthesia they like to use.   They could have used something that just doesn't agree with you.  Also the body is a strange machine, doesn't always respond the same way.  Best of luck with your up coming surgery.

Just remember to ask if you can have a Scopolamine patch.  :)
