So I am super excited because I am going to finally see the surgeon today at 11am. On the down side I am so damn nauseated because I have been NPO since 9pm for all my fasting labs and gall bladder ultrasound this morning.  It would be fine if I had been sleeping all night but I have been at work since 7pm. I am not used to not eating or drinking at work and I feel like hell.

I'm sorry that you are feeling poorly! I can't believe anyone would feel good being awake having to fast for those tests.

Maybe in the future though, you might not use your nursing terms (we all know by now that you are a nurse) when posting on here. Most of us do not know the medical "lingo" enough to be able to respond.

Yes, Martha Thank you!  I was trying to figure it out and the best I could come up with was NPO-Not Pissed Off so go figure!  Jane

Sometimes I forget. I will have to watch that.

I went through similar. I suggest bringing a snack and a bottle of water with you so that you can eat/drink the moment the tests are done.

Come visit me on my blog, Through a Cooking Glass! I talk about my journey through WLS and learning to live, cook, and eat on the other side.

I can't imagine having to stay awake for that.  Hope you are doing better now!  JMO but I wouldn't consider NPO to be a nursing term per se - considering it is on LOTS of RX bottles. :)
