I did get sick. I was in labor all day and asked for Zofran when I got the epi which helped. I reminded my anesthesiologist that night that I don't respond well to the meds (morphine in particular) and he gave me Zofran along with everything else right before they cut me open, then I got another shot of it after I got sick about 2 hours after surgery. Part of mine might also have been that I ate a very small meal at 5:30 that morning and was having surgery at 7:30 that night. I didn't eat again until the next morning.
Just let everyone know before the action gets going that you're afraid of getting sick and the very second you feel it coming on, get something.

I never got sick with my C-Section, but I second what others have said: if it gives you a lot of anxiety, just be sure to tell all your doctors and nurses that you're worried about it and they can give you something ahead of time to help prevent it. Then just be very open with them about what you are feeling--the moment you start to feel sick, tell them and they can quickly put something in your IV.
Also, if you are having a scheduled C-Section, they'll tell you this... but you aren't supposed to eat for (i forget how many?) hours before the scheduled surgery and that's to help prevent you from throwing up.
I have had three c/s and did throw up while they were operating on my for the first one. I had eaten a little earlier so that could have been why. But anyways, I told the anesthesiologist I was getting sick, turned my head and threw up in a bucket. I don't remember it being too bad though, just strange and scary.
With both 2 subsequent c/s, I told the Dr what happened and he told me to tell him as soon as I felt sick and he would give me something. That is exactly what happened and told him as soon as I felt queasy. He gave me some medicine ( for low blood pressure) and I felt fine.
So that is my advice to you, tell the anesthesiologist as soon as you feel sick.

I threw up while they were cutting me open. I'm not so sure if they gave me anything for it, or if it would've helped if they had 'cause the stuff they made me drink, combined with just being scared out of my mind, I got to a point where I couldn't hold it back. BUT I have a REALLY bad gag reflex, something all the females in my immediate family (except my daughter, she got lucky) have. It was a wonder I kept anything down due to that. Oddly enough, after I woke up while being wheeled to recovery, I was just wanting food and drink and to see my daughter, not all in that order mind. So after I was perfectly fine, just during it was bad for me.
I do clearly remember them offering to give me something for nausea if it came up before, but by the time it hit, I could barely think so I don't even know if I asked for it or not.
My csection was not planned. I hadn't eaten in 24 hours prior because I was laboring in the hospital already ( water bag had broken the night before ). I threw up while they were doing the procedure (I could feel lots of heavy pushing in my chest/ upper stomach area that made me sick). It was like having dry heaves from a hangover, spitting up in a pan. I think they tried to give me something in my IV but it didn't help.
I also shook the whole time because of nerves...and cried/teared up a bit due to nerves.
This was last Friday. Wish I had a better experience to share.
