Is it safe to fast during daytime (no food or water 19 hrs), I had surgery 4 years ago (adhesive intestinal obstruction). Surgery was also when fastin (phentermine)?

In brief: Cause dehydration

people go on fast 12 hrs fast routinely for religious and other reasons but int well hydrated state.
Some one with severe systemic disease (s) may harm the body drink plenty of fluid before going on 19 hrs fast
