Best thing to do is call your doctor. Was it just that you were nauseous or did you eat something that was too much?

you're probably fine - I threw up a few times early out. But like the other poster said, just let your surgeon's office know.

Agree ... Let them know

.If you have an actual emergency you'll be admitted immediately 24/7 which is crucial... in my case an IV for a few days took care of a bowel obstruction and I didn't need to get re-cut open ... but had we waited it would have been a very different and much more challenging outcome.

It is normal to be nervous about something like this but I would call your surgeon and try to talk to his nurse or pa and let them know what happened and they can tell you what to watch for. I am sure if something "tore" you'd have significant pain and bleeding. But be safe and call it will also calm your panic.
