How To Deal With Vomiting After Lymph Node Surgery?
Hello, I want to ask. I am recovering now from a biopsy in the neck of the lymph node, and I was the first postoperative control 1 week ago. But at night I threw up, every time I ate / drank something for about an hour after I vomited. Can this be the effect of my glandular disease or not? And how to treat it huh? Because you can’t enter any food / drinks. Thank you

Complaints of nausea and vomiting after every meal may not be directly related to the lymph node biopsy of the neck (KGB of the neck) that you have been living a few days before. The neck KGB biopsy that you undergo is often accompanied by comorbid complaints in the form of pain in the biopsy area, bleeding, swelling, or the risk of secondary infection. So that the side effects that occur are more biased towards local complaints in the biopsy area.
While complaints of nausea and vomiting that you feel 1 week after the biopsy may be triggered by other medical conditions, such as:
1. stomach upset
2. Anxious anxiety and stress
3. food poisoning
4. food allergies and or drug allergies
5. liver disorders
6. side effects of the drugs you consume
7. typhus or dengue fever, especially if accompanied by fever
However, this needs to be evaluated and confirmed directly by the doctor who treats you or your internal medicine doctor. Your doctor will do a direct examination and evaluate your clinical condition, diseases that may trigger enlargement of the KGB of the neck and biopsy area in the neck to find out possible triggers for vomiting complaints. Historical complaints interviews also need to be conducted to find out other risk factors that influence them. If needed, the doctor can plan a supportive examination such as blood tests or ultrasound examination or endoscopy. The results of the examination will be a reference for doctors for care and treatment, so I cannot provide treatment recommendations without a direct examination.
For now, you can work on a number of things, such as avoiding physical fatigue, stress and avoid sleeping late. Pay attention to your food types by avoiding spicy foods, instant foods, or coffee. Give warm water compresses in the abdominal area and you can drink warm water to help reduce nausea complaints.
Thus the info we can convey.
