Pouch problems: Can your esophagus and gastric pouch checked out for anatomical problems. You need a scope of these.

Possible stricture: If the nausea and vomiting have been occuring since surgery it may be your gastric pouch was made to small. If the symptoms are more recent, there is the possibility of an anastomotic stricture or marginal ulceration. Evaluation of the bypass anatomy with an upper endoscopy or an UGI study would be appropriate.

Ulcer or gallstones?: Of course see your bariatric surgeon. I would look for gallstones or an ulcer. Might need a sono or endoscopy. Also consider an internal hernia your symptoms are not normal and require some investigation.
