Things an anesthetist can do to avoid that in severe cases:
1. Use multiple anti-sickness drugs that work in different ways, so if one fails, then you still have some hope that the other anti-sickness drugs will work.
2. Increase gut motility by giving medication as a premed.
3. Ensure adequate hydration during the procedure.
4. Use TIVA - total intravenous anesthesia, which has has amazing results. In this case, the anesthetic is injected continuously using a pump into a vein rather than inhaling a vapor while asleep.
Avoiding a general anesthetic is the most obvious choice. The use of blocks and spinals (depending on the type of surgery) can help reduce the likelihood of PONV.
If you do need a general, having a Total IV Anesthetic (no anesthetic gas is used here) is the best method to prevent this occurrence. Speak with your anesthesiologist about what options you do have available and see if a TIVA (total IV) is appropriate.
Go into surgery believing that you will do well afterwards. Your mindset is also very important. Don't assume you will have nausea just because it happened before. When you do find a combo that works, jot the details down and ask for it in the future.
Hope this helps. Best of luck to you!
