Nausea After Surgery
I had anaesthetic and surgery on Tuesday, came home in the evening, and felt ok, but today have felt some mild nausea on and off all day, although not actually being sick. Could this still be the after effects of the anaesthetic (3 days after) or should I be a bit concerned and seek advice.

General anaesthetic has a long half life, 20 minutes of GA is still traceable in the body up to 3 months later, this is why all anaesthesists will ask when you had your last one before giving you another one. They have to adjust the dose to take into account the GA that is still in your system. People react differently, nausea and loss of appetite is common as is a horrid metallic taste in the mouth. Hope you feel better soon.
