I had the scope patch and two antinausea IV meds and still was very ill the first 30 hours. They think it was the pain pump. I was not allowed home until I was over it though.
I was kinda the same way... Nauseated while the pain pump was running Morphine, which also happened to make me itch severely, so it was changed to Dilaudid after the first 4 or 5 hours. Once it was changed I did not have any more nausea or severe itching! I had the scopolomine patch and about 4 other anti-nausea meds on board before surgery so if you are prone to nausea, ASK!!!!
After being dismissed from the hospital, the only time I have felt nausated or thrown up was when I took my multivitamin on an empty stomach!!! Only stayed down about 30 seconds!!! And boy was that PAINFUL!!!
