If you have a lot of pain I wouldn't forego the meds. If You need to take your pills with food but its a fasting lab, what I do is drink a half cup of milk. It lines your stomach for a little while. I have the same problems with my meds and the milk works for me.

You can have water - generally fasting is only food, although I'd avoid cordial/milk/soft drink etc.

Sometimes with fasting labs they don't want you taking meds. The best thing to do is call either the lab or doctor and ask how they want you to handle it.

When I have to fast they allow me sips of water to take meds but that's all. Am guessing it depends on what labs you are having. Talking to them is your best option hun. Am sure they have a protocol in place on what patients should do.

Thanks guys.. my mind is running all over the place with this appointment. This appointment will be the meaning of life or death to me.. especially from what I just found out about the tumors impacting my lungs. I just don't want to do anything that will mess this up. I will call and ask. Thank you guys.
