Patient : I have to have surgery and am non diabetic hypoglycemia and cant eat for 8 hours before the surgery.. I am afraid this will cause me to have a panik attack as it can if I tried to go this long without eating .. How will the hospital help with this situation so that I dont pass out or start shaking ans stuff ????? I do better if I take Lorazepam when I cant eat for long periods of time and it wears off in 7 hours but am unsure if they would allow me to take this if needed ??? Thank you for any info you can help me with
