    Good news. They scheduled the surgery an hour earlier and the nurse said o.k. to the Am. Ac. of Anesth. recommendations- toast and tea 6 hours before and juice 2 hours before. That should help. Thanks all for your replies.

    Maz- I’ll call tomorrow and ask about the timing of the surgery. It is not until Aug. 29. If it was earlier that would help. Thanks.

    The article says they advise fasting so the food from the stomach doesn’t go into the lungs but with modern anesthesia that is not likely. If I have dry heaves I won’t be able to have the procedure. I do look forward to better vision.

    Lynnie- With nothing in my stomach, I have had horrendous headaches and dry heaves. There is an article’ Fasting before surgery- before and after surgery’ at HealthCommunities.com. I will be having conscious sedation- versed and propopal, not a general anesthetic. The article says the American Society of Anesthesiologists says you can safely have a clear liquid like fruit juice without pulp 2 hours before surgery and a light meal like toast and tea 6 hours before surgery. The no food after midnight is easy for the doctor, no different fasting for each patient, but it says some anesthesiologists modify the fasting.

    Hi whaleharbor She removed it surgically, said it was too large to freeze and will biopsy it. Probably benign but occasionally they become precancer. Thanks for your support.

    Whaleharbor My pcp confirmed dermatofibroma. My dermatologist will remove it next Monday, either freeze it or surgically remove it. I will be glad to be rid of it.

    Hi whaleharbor I diagnosed it myself. It is on my upper right leg, itches and bugs me. I see my new pcp tomorrow and will see what he says. I would like it frozen/removed before cataract surgery Aug. 29.

    The summary is of a cephalosporin but the full text about minocycline is good.
