    Has anyone else experienced persistent nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite after colon surgery (partial colectomy)?

    I have not even started chemotherapy yet so this worries me.

      I have been in constant contact with my doctors and they are aware of the problem. They did an EGD and colonoscopy about 3 weeks ago which was unremarkable for any problem.

      I had nausea for a long time after my surgery and before I started chemo. Also had no appitite which did worry me. I didn't want to keep dropping my weight, so I drank carnation instant breakfast everyday to keep calories when I couldn't eat and eventually things got better especially when they give you steroids you will get hungry Hope this helps and good luck Joyce

      I did not have vomiting, I may vaguely remember a little nausea. I had to eat small amounts but that was because my stomach shrunk being with the tube down my nose for a week.
