I'm going to have a small day case procedure in hospital tomorrow. It will be under general anesthetic. The cut off for starting to fast in preparation is midnight. AIBU to eat everything I can until the last possible second? grin

Order takeaway

I literally live in the middle of nowhere. It's not possible to get any more rural than I am without living on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic not bitter so no takeaway I'm afraid. I will however be eating a burger, munching through my body weight in pistachios and topping it off with some 85% dark chocolate.

Unless you've got a perfectly behaved bowel do not be tempted to fill up too much that whilst under anaesthetic the unthinkable happens...

and you're going to have to poop it all out before your procedure! Eat light.. that's what I'd do. Good luck for your appointment smile

And don't forget to drink your body weight in water too.
