Why can't you drink after anesthesia?

Opioids , hypnotics, and other drugs given to induce general anesthesia disable the vagus nerve, which activates, among many other things, the smooth or involuntary muscles of the stomach and intestine. For this reason, the digestive system needs to rest for a while before functioning normally again.

If you drink too soon after coming out of unconsciousness, the patient will experience nausea and vomiting. Or worse still: the ingested liquid could reach the lungs , since the reflex actions of our body, such as coughing, have also been dampened by sedation. On the other hand, the fasting prescribed before surgery has no other purpose than to prevent gastric contents from infiltrating the respiratory system.
