I just had a hernia repair for a strangulated hernia, which was quite drastic, and so am unable to exercise. I am on the diet and exercise loop.
Just after the operation I was unable to eat properly either, because I was allergic to the painkillers and so throwing up all the time. So I ate digestive biscuits (10 grams carbs, 7 grams sugar) instead. To my suprise my levels were low those first few days, and so I drank and ate stuff that I have only dreamed of for a year, but now the levels are consistently higher even though I am eating “normally” (for diabetes anyway) again - not completely horrendous, just higher. I think the highest number is 135, whereas usually I am in the 85s at the highest.
Does anyone know how much this is due to the three day binge I had (seven days ago now) how much to the anesthetic (if any) and how much to the lack of ANY exercise, since I am pretty much still confined to the sofa. I am not quite sure if I can make any more changes to my diet without being hungry all the time.
