Abstract

Postoperative nausea, vomiting, and pain present considerable concerns after reconstructive breast surgery. We present a case report of a 65-year-old woman with a history of severe postoperative nausea and vomiting, presenting for unilateral mastectomy with transverse rectus abdominis muscle flap. We performed unilateral pectoral nerve block and transverse abdominis plane block, which provided 24 hours of pain control and mitigated nausea and vomiting during the postoperative period.
