In brief: A few reasons

If you were sedated, then it probably the sedation that is causing the vomiting.
Narcotic pain medications can cause vomiting also. If you are not in severe pain then switch over the plain tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen.

In brief: Side effect

Hydrocodone is an intermediate opiate analgesic which is metabolized to hydromorphone, the active metabolite.
One of the side effects of opiate analgesics is nausea and vomiting. This side effect is more prominant in some patients and either must be discontinued to avoid the side effects or replaced with another analgesic which may not have the side effect.

In brief: Hydrocodone

Narcotic pain medication is notorious for causing nausea and vomiting.
Try eating what you can before you take your pain medication or ask for anti nausea medication.
