Diabetic- DaVinci ?

I am diabetic on Metfor and glipazide. My last A1C was 5.9...
I was told that I need to be off my meds 24 hours before the surgery. (DaVinci)
The hospital will use insulin to regulate me after my surgery.
When I go home I will go back on the met and Glip.

So here is what I would like to know... was it hard to get the sugar regulated once you were home?
And do you think it took longer than normal to heal?
Did you have to alter your med dose because of the surgery?

I am for some reason really concerned with this...

Re: Diabetic- DaVinci ?

I am not officially a diabetic, but I am borderline.
My A1c was 6.4 without diet and meds. It was a surprise.
I went on a diet, lost 30 pounds, and now my a1c is 5.6 without meds.

I am working on losing a little more weight and watching my carbs.

Anyway, I think this borderline diabetes that I have is making it difficult for my granulation sore on my cervical cuff to heal. I had to have another minor surgery on July 16, to have the area lasered so that it could heal.

It still hasn't healed completely. There is still a very small area lingering.

I am sure they will be able to manage your blood sugars just fine.
They are pros.

Try not to worry.

Good Luck!

Re: Diabetic- DaVinci ?

I am also diabetic on met. The slow healing time worries me. I know that when I've been sick my blood sugar is much harder to control. I figure it may be the same with major surgery. I figured I'll just test a lot.

I would ask your dr. It may be that if they expect you to have problems that they can send you home with a prescription for insulin. I had to use insulin while I was pregnant and while it's rather yucky it does work. I would bring it up now since they may need to teach you to use it and you want to do that before you need to.
