A week ago today, I had my gallbladder removed. Fortunately, the surgeon was able to do it laprosc. so I only stayed overnight. Luckily, I brought my own meter (after reading previous discussions)because they only tested once in the morning I was leaving. That number was 160 and the nurse told me I must not have good control at home. I informed her that I had taken my sugars several times since surgery and they were around 100 each time. I informed her that maybe my fasting number was high because:
#1. I was in pain from the surgery and getting sick from the anastesia.
#2. I was on a liquid diet and they had nothing to offer that was not sugar free.
#3. I caved in and drank cranberry juice because I just could not drink any more water.
#4. I could not sleep due to many reasons including my poor roommate who kept thinking she was at a hotel and trying to order room service every hour.
Another lesson learned!
