In brief: Gastroparesis
Not including the most common causes of nausea and vomiting which accompany any type of surgery (anesthesia, pain, etc.
) one of the most common complications of the whipple procedure is delayed emptying of stomach contents into the intestines. This can lead to dilation of the stomach and vomiting.
