Since they are putting me under for oral surgery

They have said no food or even water before surgery.

I thought I'd write this little poem.

(high pitched mouse voice:) "CHEEEEEEEEEESE!!!"

They have you fast because it is a royal pain to do surgery through "urp" :-)

Weeell, and they don't want to risk anything coming back up (like from a bad reaction to the anesthesia) when the patient is "under".

I'm sorry, I don't mean to reap enjoyment from your pain... but... that was funny. ::giggle::

That sucks! When had my wisdom teeth extracted they told me to eat a big breakfast, because I wouldn't eat for the rest of the day. Of course I did it awake with local. I must be a glutton for punishment I suppose.

Fortunately the nitrous was turned way up (my dentist uncle performed the procedure), and I had my discman playing an infinite loop of Pink Floyd.


Hope the surgery goes/went well and that all bits are accounted for. :)

I just went through it - all I could eat for the next two days was Boost shakes. Good luck and godspeed, my friend! The drugs are great, though.

I feel your pain. I've had lots of oral surgery. Thank goodness there's lots of good drugs out there. I also hate fasting. Ack.
I get really creative when I can't eat well when recovering from oral surgery - I'm not a big liquid food fan either.
