It is very common to have nausea and vomiting after anesthesia. This is usually the result of narcotics and anesthetic gases that are used. Anti-nausea drugs are routinely given, but they are not always effective. It is possible to eliminate the use of gases at times and minimize narcotics. This can help. Unfortunately, people who have prior episodes of postoperative nausea, people with motion sickness, non-smokers and women all remain at higher risk.
