Coffee okay before surgery?

Hi! I am going in for a TAH/BSO tomorrow at noon. My doctor said that I could have clear liquids and coffee up to four hours before surgery. Should I drink a cup of coffee or will I suffer later maybe from nausea due to the anaesthesia?

First, I hope everything goes good for you tomorrow.
I couldn't have anything after midnight before my surgery but I did have a few sips of coffee in morn. If you could limit to no more than one cup it would probably be best.
Again, good luck

Coffee before surgery

Thanks for the QUICK responses! Guess I will forgo the caffeine tomorrow morning. Seems like I am going to be SO thirsty by the time of surgery.

Good luck Karen! I am also Karon (different spelling). I hear the waiting is the worst part. I sure hope so!

I am so ready to get it over with. Since November I have been in the ER twice due to exquisite pain either from ovarian cysts or fibroids. I have had enough!

Hope you sail through smoothly tomorrow!

Take it from me. You don't want anything on your stomach! Nothing! I spent the entire operating time violently ill. I am so grateful my stomach was empty because you can potentially aspirate if you have something on your stomach.

Since you don't know how you will respond to the anesthesia I would hihgly recommend waiting.

Good luck with your surgery!

Coffee okay before surgery?

Hi there, my DR told me I could have coffee the morning of surgery. They said no more than one cup no sugar or cream added. I was perfectly fine having it and happy, simply because they asked for another urine sample on surgery day. My surgery was at 1 pm. Don't know if yours is in the morning or afternoon, that may make a difference too. But always check with your Nurse or DR. Have a great surgery and speedy recovery, and everybody is right waiting is the worst of all.
