Have you had your surgeon (don't use a general use a thoracic surgeon) do a motility test to see if your esophogus is pushing the food to the stomach? I've had emergency surgery 10 years ago. Recently I had hietal hernia surgery. Only because last year around April I started feeling sick to my stomach. Then I started vomiting twice a day. I never went to the doctor until August which was completely irresponsible of me.I had a terrible G.I. Doctor. I know because I've been to very good ones. No, I don't think pain meds can cause this problem. Maybe what your taking pain meds for could have. I'm not a doctor and you should write all your symptoms down to tell your doctor preferably a G.I. Doctor. It's not something to wait on. Have you had an endoscopy or any test that involved a barium swallow with an upper GI? You should make an appt. with a gastrinologest or get a referral from your primary care doctor. Good Luck.
