    Does anyone suffer from chronic nausea after stomach cancer surgery? If you do what have you done to help the nausea?

      I have tried everything you mentioned except the sea band. I think I will give that a try. Thanks for your response. I am now trying accupunture and herbal supplements. I think it might be helping.

      I had a complete gastrectomy in sept '13.... nausea was really bad at first. Took all the standarx meds offered. What ultimately was effective was staying hydrated which in turn helps any constipation issues caused by pain meds. I stopped all the meds except for senna and ativan. The key i believe now is not over eating/drinking & watching for food intolerance created by the surgery. Sugar, milk products, even proteins such as an egg would make me exhausted tho not nauseas. It is truly an exercise in trial and error. The hospital nutritionist really didnt help but i am pursuing one outside the hospital setting now. Best of luck to you.

      Hi BobbieJean, did you hit the enter button too soon before asking the rest of your question? Just let us know what you need to know about Nausea, it's a tough side effect, but usually controlled with anti nausea meds.
      Waiting to hear back from you.
