Preventing Nausea After Laparoscopy

I have an exploratory laparoscopy in a week and a half for infertility issues and suspected endo.  I haven't really had surgery aside from my wisdom teeth, and as a complete and utter emetophobe I am petrified of being sick that day or so afterwards from the anesthesia/pain meds.  I was wondering if you all have any tips for avoiding sickness post-surgery.  Did the scopolamine patch work for you?  Zofran?  I would love any advice to ease my mind!  Thanks so much!!

I have not used those but the best way to avoid it and/or help ease it is by drinking Ginger or Peppermint tea.

Hope that helps.
