Hernia and Adhesions Q&A from The Surgeons Lounge

"The patient presented to our clinic with complaints of nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. The nausea and vomiting started in January 2012, a few months after the small bowel resection. It was noted that he was not able to tolerate a regular diet after surgery for an extended period of time. His physician prescribed metoclopramide without effect, and the nausea occurred three to four times weekly with vomiting at least once or twice per week. Eating sometimes exacerbated the nausea and vomiting. He also complained of intermittent bloating and abdominal distention."
