Surgery Tomorrow! 12 hours no food/drink :(



Recommended Posts

Hi there! So I was informed today that I need to be at the hospital tomorrow evening at 12noon for my surgery. However I cannot eat/drink after midnight. That's 12+ hours with no food/drink! Is this normal? What can I do to help me out?

I plan to go to work tomorrow morning to stay busy, thinking that it may help keep my mind off of wanting to eat/drink however I'm thinking it may be easier to sleep through it in the morning then head to the hospital. What worked for you?

Starting at midnight you're not allowed? I think if you sleep for 8 hours and then get up and go to work then you'll only be going 4 hours without eating and drinking. I don't know if that's actually how long you sleep but 4 hours seems a lot shorter of a period if you think about it like that.

That's a great way of looking at it, now that you say it like that. Thanks!
I'm jus used to Breakfast and coffee. But my nerves will probably aid in me not being hungry either.

It went well everyone. Freaking out over nothing. I was thinking about the number 12, not taking into consideration I slept 6 hours of that, then got up and went to work to further keep myself occupied. I'm now entering day1 post-op. Thanks everyone for your encouraging words!

It gets better each day. It is a weird feeling with a different size stomach. Be patient

I am glad that you are doing well and that you are recovering smoothly. How long did the surgery take?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
