The aim was to study if postoperative nausea after colorectal surgery could be reduced with patient-active TENS-treatment. Twenty patients with malign diagnosis, ten in a treatment group and ten in a control group, tested TENS the first two postoperative days. The patients made notes about how they used TENS and if their nausea was reduced. Nausea was diminished in both groups, which as well may indicate a placebo effect. Post-operative nausea interferes with mobilization, nutrition and rehabilitation. Since TENS is easy to use and cost-effective it is a valuable method for treatment that can be offered to patients and increase their satisfaction with care. A larger randomized study should be of value.
