So sorry OP. I've been there before, with the exception of evil parents.
26 - if you really went five days without water you must be a superhuman. I always thought a person could only survive three days, and after that was kinda on borrowed time and suffering from severe itching from dry skin and hallucinations. Unless you were on a drip, in which case you weren't being deprived of anything, although it might have felt like it.
Usually you don't eat so when they operate there isn't food in the digestive systems... yoy wouldn't want them to vomit or have food spill out while operating. The time depends on where they are operating. If they are operating on somewhere not too close to the stomach them its usually 9 hours because of precautions. Otherwise it can be up to 48 hours as shown. Just to make sure it is completely clear. But that really sucks.
I bet your hand is looking pretty good right now. I've been there, too. It's not a good place.
It's probably best for your health. Besides, they probably have you hooked up to an IV injection anyway. That alone will supply your body with the nutrients it needs.
