Maybe a little: Nausea is not unexpected. Sbo is a condition that gradually improves, so you are probably still partially obstructed, which is causing the nausea. You should be on a liquid, or at most a low residue, diet for some time. But more important is that the cause your sbo is thoroughly investigated.

Can be: Yes you can still have symptoms of nausea eventhough your small bowel obstruction is resolved. It may not be 100%. Just give it time and stay on liquids for a few days and see how you feel.
