Hi everyone. Nausea and a tkr isn’t an exciting topic or one that you want to read at the dinner table. Still..it needs to be discussed since some of you have asked me about it….
Of the many comments I’ve received lately, a common theme concerns nausea after tkr and during recuperation. “What is your experience?â” I’ve been asked? So, here it is…
I had nausea during two periods after my tkr. The first was caused by the anesthesia while I was recuperating in the hospital. I didn’t eat much while in the hospital.
The only other episode occurred when I took the “pain meds” (I use parentheses since the meds did not handle the pain). The nausea was mild, but still noticeable. I remember that episode as being two weeks. Then, I just started aspirin.
After those two periods, no problem. The only other time I get nauseous nowadays is when I see someone eat nacho chips covered with that orange-colored liquid stuff called cheese.
Or, come to think about, when I see that orange stuff on any food. I’m suddenly not feeling well. I need to clear my mind.
Hope this helps others going through the same thing.
