Very disappointed!

I got a phone call from my dr. today. She has been upset over the past two blood glucose tests 213 and now 252, 213 was 12hr fasting, 252 was 2hr after meal. She fears I'm diabetic, she first said that if my sugar was a little elevated that we could still go ahead with the surgery, I'll just heal a little slower and have to be extra careful not to develope infection. Well after today, she now saids that surgery will have to be postponed until sugar levels are under control. I'm sheduled to see my family prctice dr. Monady for glucose monitoring and I guess he will run his own tests. She saids that even if I watch my diet between now and 4/20 there is no certainty that it will be low enough for surgery. Really upset even though she means well and is the best dr. I've ever had. Still upsetting! Thankxx for letting me vent!

I am so sorry to hear that your castle date could be postponed. That's really ruff! :hair: But, my Mom has diabetes and I know that is nothing to play around with. Good thing this was discovered now and not after the fact. God has a way of helping when we don't realize it. Hopefully this is one of those moments. Together we can have faith that all will work out ok.

Dear treebo,
I am so sorry you got bad news. I can't imagine how frustrating that must be, not just to have the surgery postponed, but to have something else go wrong, too. I hope the glucose was just high because of nerves or something, and you'll get it all straightened out in time.
Lots of love and

Dear (((Treebo))), It is normal to feel disappointment that your operation may need to be postponed so close to the date even though you clearly understand your doctor needs to take many precautions before major surgery. You also know it is very important that your doctors determine why your sugar levels are so high including if you may have diabetes which is nothing to full with but is very controllable. In fact many people have diabetes and do not know it and as in all diseases it is better to discover it early. I am glad to hear that your family doctor will be running tests so soon. Please let us know how things go after your tests. You seem to be in very capable medical hands. Many s, peggiesue

What a huge bummer!

Did you have any idea your blood sugar might be elevated? Just think--you've probably done something extremely good for your health by finding out about this.

Take good care of yourself and let us know what happens.

I'm sorry...

Hi treebo...
I'm sorry to hear that your date is going to be postponed. I do hope your doc is able to get the diabetes under control though. Hopefully, you will have a new date and won't be put too far behind. In the meantime, take care of you.

If you are a diabetic then it is good the doctor will monitor you. You do not want infections due to surgery. Or blood clots. If you are not a diabetic and your numbers are so high it could be drinking a lot of soda or coffee. It could also be related to nerves. I already had diabetes before surgery I had it for 10 years before. At the time , I was pregnant becaue they discovered the cancer while pregnant and hyst and baby came the same time. My diabetes complicated everything and I had infections later, my heart stopped on the tagle,lway too much gas, eating problems, bladder and bowel problems, anthing that occurs on this board to othters too. So it is my opinion that it is a good thing your doctor postponed surgrey to find the source of the elavated sugars. you do not want added comkplications if you can prevent them.

thanks sisters!

Thanks for listening and the support. You guys are right and the dr. is right , diabetes is serious. My dads mom died fromkidney failure when I was 7 or 8, it was due to complcations from diabetes. I thought of that today and did some research online. I better get with the program and try to tame this thing now, before it's too late. I want desperately to be healthy and live a long life and I have all the drive I need. Thanks ladies to you and all my family and friends. I think I'll retire for the evening now that the blues are pssing and I can see that this is all in my best interest now . Talk at you later, goodnight, don't let the bed bugs bite!lol!

Sweety, I hate to say it, but it sure sounds (from your numbers) that you ARE a diabetic. I'm not sure why they feel the need to cancel your surgery though. My gyn controlled my sugars in the hospital with insulin, even though I usually just take oral medications. I hope that you will consider seeing a endocronologist. I just started seeing one, last fall and he's taught me more about diabetes and how to take care of myself than I've learned in the previous 20 years of having diabetes. Wishing you the very best.
