Nibble before the knife - Not so fast: Pre-op food ban discredited
So it seems the no eating after midnight rule isn't all that useful anyway. I always wondered if 8 hours or so was really required so you wouldn't barf during surgery.

It now appears that even light meals can be eaten up to 4 hours before a surgery and liquids up to two hours befoe. Yay!

I think I'm going to cut myself some slack on the liquids for sure next time I have surgery.
