    Any opioid medication can potentially cause stomach problems.  Try taking your Percocet with food and see if that helps.  It makes a big difference for me.  If that doesn't help, talk to your doctor.  He may be willing to try you on some other pain medications, like morphine, or may be able to give you something to counteract the stomach upset.  Good luck!
