Does anyone know how long you're supposed to fast before a GA?
Not 100% sure, but when my dad had a GA before Christmas he fasted from midnight the night before, including no water. He was meant to have his op first thing in the morning, so I guess it was 8 hours.
I read somewhere it was 6 hours but that was way off what i thought it was. Thought it was more like 24hrs, but then again i probably just totally made that up
a light breakfast can be eaten 6 hours prior BUT it's all consultant depending they all have their own rules
most just say from midnight
From midnight the night before. The longer the better as you will be less likely to be nauseous and vomitting after surgery
Just got my letter last week and it said to fast from midnight. No food or water. You can clean you teeth on the morning though as i rang up and asked
They said they might call me for today, today IYKWIM so if it had been more than a few hours fasting needed i might have missed the chance at my slot.
Turns out i'm in tomorrow and have been told to fast from midnight.
