I have a couple of questions I hope somebody can help me with. I am scheduled for an outpatient surgical procedure in a little over a week. It is about a 2-1/2 hour drive to get to the medical center (my sister will be driving). I am not to have anything to eat or drink after midnight but I am not scheduled for the procedure until 1:30pm. 1st question: how do I keep from going low? I am on MDIs--split dose of 5u Lantus each and Novolog for correx and to cover carbs. I am real nervous about not eating/drinking for that amount of time. They told me to contact my doctor for instructions, which I will do, but I know from experience that what I can learn from you guys has much more credence than what I will get from the doctor. Because of financial constraints I am not currently seeing my endo so will be calling my primary. Any suggestions? 2nd question: Because of the length of time without eating/drinking and the long drive to get there, do you think it would be better to go the day before and spend the night? We will not be driving home after the procedure, plan to spend the night there. Need to be making reservations real soon and need to figure out whether to make them for 1 night or 2.
