Dizziness after surg: Dizziness after surgery is not very common. Have you primary care provider check your labs and check it out first. If the tests are negative, them see an ENT doctor who will rule out benign positional vertigo bppv can occur after surgery due to the positioning. Good luck. Feel better!

Not really: If you had a minor surgery that was most likely done under local anesthesia. Its uncommon to be dizzy and nauseous after 10 days. Are you taking any medication post surgery. It could be side effect of medicine. Please consult your doctor.
