Can a person get long-term nausea from a leg amputation?

From meds?: It is not common or likely to get nausea from a leg amputation itself. It is more likely to get nausea as a side effect from medications being taken.
Dr. Christopher Bulger

Unlikely: A well healed amputation should not lead to gastrointestinal symptoms. However , chronic pain, which may present after surgery can be associated with nausea.
Dr. Marlis Gonzalez fernandez
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 13 years experience
No: Unless there is an ongoing issue with the amputation site (infection most likely) nausea is not related to it. Even with active issues nausea would be very rare.
