In brief: Ask your surgeon for

Something in advance.
I usually give a prescription for Phenergan (promethazine) suppositories. You can use these even when you are actively vomiting.

There are several anti emetic(vomiting) pills available. Also having the surgeon suction the stomach of blood and gastric juices helps.

In brief: Speak with your

Anesthesiologist.
He will be responsible for preventing/treating your nausea in the peri-operative period.
