In brief: Most patients have

No side effects from the IV contrast given for ct scans.
The blood work performed afterwards may have been to make sure your kidney function was ok before you restarted a diabetes medicine with the drug metformin in it.

In brief: It

It is not uncommon to feel a bit nauseated after getting certain intravenous dyes.
This should not last more than a few hours, if that.
