If I am having ankle surgery at 1 pm and am having a block, can I eat a little something early in the morning?

If I am having ankle surgery at 1 pm and am having a block, can I eat a little something early in the morning?

Ask your surgeon!: Most anesthesia providers require an empty stomach for at least 6-8 hours before surgery. Although you are having a block, you may well also be receiving sedation via intravenous, and this could make you drowsy enough to lose part of your gag reflex, allowing vomit to enter your lungs. Bad! And what if things go poorly with the block and they want to put you to sleep? Now it's unsafe if you ate! ...Read more

Whenever I eat breakfast early in the morning, I feel like throwing up. It is only in the early morning (6-8am). I do not feel like puking around 10am?

Don't eat then!: I don't know if western medicine has a good answer for why this happens, though your symptom may be addressed by homeopathy or chinese medicine so if you really want to address this consult a homeopath or acupuncture practitioner. But the simplest solution is to honor your body's feedback and not eat until 10 am; this may change over time even without treatment. ...Read more

What can cause lower abdomen pains for several days after normal monthly period? Pain is worse after I eat, early in the morning, and after to much movement. I have taken ibuprofen, pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) on the first couple of days.

There: There are many possible causes of lower abdominal pain. These include urinary tract infection (uti), peptic ulcer, infection, ovarian cysts, etc. Etc.

What causes early morning anxiety? 5am my heart starts pounding for no reason. After I get up, eat something, get ready for the day it goes away.

Worries: It's possible that your worries, concerns, and fears are being processed by your brain during the night. Perhaps this occurs while you dream.

Early morning I Cant eat breakfast due to stomach pains yet lunch is fine with me in the morning What I eat 4 breakfast I can eat fine any other time?

Breaking the fast: Try reducing the size of your breakfast and the pace. Your stomach jsut may not be ready when you wake. A lot of people have this issue.

Complex proteins require more gastric activity to break down than carbs so you could lower your protein at breakfast to see if that helps. ...Read more

I have early morning heartburn a lot. Not taking PPI drugs due to C-Diff infection. What can I do. I Raised my bed. Eat small meals and nothing spicy.

C Diff and PPI's: There is a moderate amount of evidence that C. difficile infection is more common in PPI users. You can try H2 blockers, such as Zantac, (ranitidine) but if your symptoms persist unabated, your physician will need to decide whether the symptoms you're having outweigh the increased risk of C. difficile infection. If your doctor agrees, try Zantac, (ranitidine) but you may need to have this discussion with him. Good luck. ...Read more

It will take years: Technically, probably the answer is, "yes, " but you may not like it in the beginning. For example, if you start to wake up at 5 in the morning to go swimming at the y before work, it will be very tough. After 6-12 months, though, it will be easier and more "normal" for you.
