Hi, I'm 9 days post revision surgery for cc and I am experiencing mild nausea and diarrhea. Im worried about a drug interaction as the cause. My PS prescribed meloxicam daily for 5 days following surgery. I resumed taking my usual medication, hydrochlorothiazide, on the second day after surgery (for idiopathic hypercalciuria). . Could the nausea and diarrhea be related to that or is it normal to experience these symptoms after revision surgery (a lot of scar tissue was removed). Thank you.

Nausea and diarrhea after surgery
If you are experiencing mild nausea and diarrhea 9 days after surgery it is most likely due to your antibiotics. Ask your plastic surgeon if you can start on a probiotic to recolonize your intestines with good bacteria.
Nausea and Diarrhea 9 days after surgery?
Hello and thank you for your question.
Nausea/Diarrhea is not normal or expected 9 days after surgery. This would not be related to a revision or any scar tissue removal. I would consult with your primary care doctor if the problem continues.
