1 doctor agrees

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.

In brief: Unlikely

A well healed amputation should not lead to gastrointestinal symptoms.
However , chronic pain, which may present after surgery can be associated with nausea.
