Why can't I drink water after midnight before surgery?
My husband is having eye surgery and they are not going put him under. So, I was wondering why he can't eat or drink anything after midnight before the 11:00 am surgery.

Because you might leak with all of the holes that are gonna be in you

Even though they aren't knocking him out they do give you a drug that relaxes your body so you can stay still for the surgery. They always air on the side of caution when it comes to any surgery with throwing up. They can't have him throwing up during the procedure. Eyes are a very risky thing you can be working on. So this is just a precaution. Besides it won't hurt him to not drink or eat after midnight anyways. He can pig out the next day if he feels like it.

It is kinda like going to the dentist if you have a morning appointment more than likely you don't eat beforehand because of nerves. Even though they don't knock you out your tummy can feel upset and if there isn't food in there less likely to throw up.

Increases your chances of vomiting and asphyxiating on it.
Anesthesia alone make some sick. Just reducing the chances.

because if they use anesthesia, it will make you nauseous and you might throw up.

because the gas they give you relaxes your muscles so yo may pee on yourself

Sandie B
To help reduce the bodily fluids; sort of starving the liquids.
Plus, should something happen that would result in having to make a change, his body is ready.

Because he might get nauseous and throw up all over the surgeon, not pretty

because the .. i forget what its called.. but anyways the stuff they knock you out with, if u have ANYTHING in your stomache, you will throw up. (anistetics or something like that)

Austin N
Becuase it will go through your system and will do 2 things.
1. Your body is gonna want to go to the bathroom.
2. When they put you to sleep with the gases, it will make your stomach wanna throw up.

Before surgery they don't want anything in your stomach because it will react badly with the anesthesia. You need to have a completely empty stomach so that when they put the tubes in there is no reflux. Even drinking water or chewing gum will get your juices going and you will have a bad reaction. So, even if you are having a little bit later surgery they always say no eating after midnight as they are never exactly sure when your surgery is going to take place. They are very strict about this when you check into the hospital. They don't want you throwing up into the tube while they try to put you under, they don't want to risk you strangling on your own vomit.
