I have to leave in an hour so I don't know if I'll get a reply before that, but can someone tell me the point of not eating or drinking for 8 hours before sedation. I will not be going completely under and there will be no tube down my throat. I thought the eat/drink thing was for general anesthesia in case you threw up while asleep and the tube was in the way.
I haven't eaten, but have had a few sips of water as I have an awful problem with dry mouth. Thanks!
