My 75 yr old mother has had non-stop nausea following an operation. She has had 3 stents placed in the last 4 months. One procedure for stenosis of the superior m. artery. She has had imaging of her abdomen, CT of head, blood work, endoscopy and biopsies. She has just had a colonoscopy w/no results to explain her ongoing nausea. Could anesthesia from June still be affecting her?
It's very unlikely that your mother's anesthesia has anything to do with her ongoing nausea. I think this is a random association. For a brief discussion around this issue please review the previously answered question, listed below.
