Fasting For Surgery

Recommended Posts

I sent a note to Carolyn but haven't gotten anything back. For you experienced bandsters what kind of fast did you have to do before your preop testing? I know it was 8 hours but were you allowed any liquid? Same question for fasting before Surgery.

I believe before the pre-op testing you're allowed water since they'll be taking blood and its near impossible to get a blood sample if you are dehydrated. Before surgery, however, it is no food or liquids after midnight the night before as it can cause an embolism during surgery which is bad times.
