My ds is having dental surgery tomorrow, he is four but is behind mentally by a year/ year and half. The dental office wants me to give him nothing after midnight, there is NO WAY we could do that. Ds had his tonsils out last yr in September and they had me do no food and/or drink after 4am. He was put under general anesthesia for that and had no eating/vomiting issues. Ds still has a glass of milk right around 4/5am otherwise he gets up for the rest of the day then, we are all cranky. His dental appointment/surgery isn't till 1pm. Can I give him one last glass of milk at 4/5am and be okay? I know from my surgeries they have told me no food or drink for at least six hours.
I have not talked to the anesthetist, I am going to call to make sure or work it out so he gets what he needs and I'm not a very cranky mom tomorrow. I was just wondering what you all thought?
update: they had called me this morning to let me know that 4/5am was an okay time to stop foods/drinking.
He had his surgery it went fine, it was a 2 hr surgery with one extraction. We found out my genes played a huge part in why he has teeth problems. Anyways all is good he is sleeping now.
