Default Severe Pain & Vomiting Following Surgery

Hello - my 14 year old daughter had a spinal fusion five days ago to correct a large curve of 86 degrees. Since then she has had severe pain to the point where she is almost screaming, nausea and chronic vomiting. Whenever she sits upright for a few minutes, she complains of pain and starts vomiting. She hasn't eaten since surgery and the staff here are talking of discharge. She can't move and is moving whenever she does move.

I'm guessing that this is not normal and I worried that surgery should not have been performed. Prior to surgery she had no pain or health problems, and now she seems unable to do anything at all without extreme pain and constant vomiting.

Has anyone else experienced vomiting after movement/pain? She's on medication for vomiting, but that doesn't seem to helping.
