I fasted for 10 hours (c-sect with epidural). I rem after the vigorous shake, I was feeling so hungry but was denied for food. Had to starve for another few hours before I was given food.

I kept begging for food. But wasn't given any until green light from gynae. He calmly told me " you are on drip. You r not starving."

yes. Fast for 8 hours . and after my csec i 36 hours then can eat porridge :( I had been on hold for drip for 36 hours..

I was told to fast for 8 hours before C-sect. Also, an hour before the surgery, the nurse inserted enema for me to clear my bowels.

Here's an useful article on c-section: You will be required to fast for 6 hours because of the anesthesia that will be administered.
