Diet Day Before Surgery-can You Eat Anything Until Midnight???

Just curious if everyone ate normally the day before surgery up until Midnight. And did anyone do a laxative on their own, since no enemas are going to be given before surgery??

I ate normally the day before surgery, but it was probably a little lighter than usual, as I was very, very nervous. I didn't have a bowel prep required, and I didn't do anything myself either, no laxatives or enemas.

I feasted and ate some of my favorite foods... and dessert (I love Turtle brownies with caramel w/nuts) before 12 midnight.

Everyone's different, but for me I was so glad I did when I couldn't eat later and was hungry. I was able to savor the memory, LOL.

I was required to take a fleet enema the day of surgery. While it did not do a complete elemination of everything in my system, it did make me go, which I guess was the objective.

I was somewhat anxious, so I ate a little "lighter" than usual, but there was no need to. I could have eaten whatever I wished. (I did eat a bowl of ice cream at about 11:30 that night..... )

Please do not do anything to self-cleanse (such as a laxative or enema) if nothing was ordered. You need to present to the hospital exactly as they expect you to come. In your case, if there was no bowel prep ordered, they expect that you'll come as a person who ate normally up to midnight the night before surgery.

Hope this helps.

I would not do an enema or laxative before surgery if your doctor did not order one. Please call your doctor and discuss this with him/her before doing one.

As for me, I was just told nothing after midnight. I was able to eat normally the day before. I don't recall what I ate, but do think that I splurged a bit as I knew I wouldn't be eating regular food for a few days.

I had a steak dinner and started eating a large mint oreo blizzard from DQ at about 11:30. Kinda glad they didn't make me do any of the bowel prep stuff. I had my first bm yesterday, and can't imagine how long it would have taken if they made sure I was cleaned out.

I was told I could eat anything until midnight. I also have to do an enema and a medicated douche.

From what I've read, most were given midnight as their cut off point. I, on the other hand, was given 9pm as my cut off for solid food and no liquids after midnight.
