Re: Fasting/laxatives day before c-section?
That's a long time to go without eating! Usually by the evening of the first day, they let me eat crackers and drink water. Then the next day, they let you eat food/food. Can't imagine going the night before to 3 days later without eating! That can't help with nourishing your body to help you heal!
Be careful about not eating the day prior... if you are worried, then maybe you could eat a lot of soups that day and foods that are on the lighter side. You don't want to be light-headed from lack of food by the time the c-s rolls around.
They had me take colace as soon as they started handing out oral pain meds and that helped. Eat a lot of ruffage in the hospital with every meal too.
