What causes nausea after having a vaginal hysterectomy?

I am a day shy of having a vaginal hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. Since about 3 days post op I have suffered episodes of nausea. I was treated with zofran 8mg and that seemed to make me feel better. I stopped taking the zofran and felt ok for about 3 days and then the nausea was back. I am feeling great other than the nausea and am no longer taking pain meds of any kind for quite some time. I take prilosec every morning due to my gallbladder so this does not feel like reflux. I have never really experienced nausea with my gallbladder (which needs to be removed next) just pain during attacks. My doctor left my tubes and ovaries and just removed the uterus and cervix. I also take anxiety meds so I know it is not anxiety related. Any ideas why I feel so awful still? I never felt this way prior to surgery

Hi, I think it is because of your gall bladder problem. Due to the operative stress, the symptoms can aggravate. So, you can take some antacids and anti-emetic also. Consult your doctor.
