I was under the impression that after i was sleeved, i would almost immediately be rid of my diabetes. I was always under control w/my meds, but was hoping to be off of meds.

my WLS was 12/15/11 - hospital took me off my meds til i saw my PHP, he told me too to stay off my meds. i was thinking terrific.

Now after some readings of 130,140 he's thinking he should put me on alittle bit of meds. I will be having my HCG soon, so we will see.

But remember, we will always be considered diabetic.

Some people have better luck though - maybe you'll be one of them :)

best

Thanks...my fingers are crossed. Unfortunately it is not a guarantee and sometimes doesn't happen right away. I'm hoping I reverse, but won't be surprised if I'm not. My levels have always been high until recently. Now I have lows which I think are a result of a new med and the liquid diet. You are right we will always be considered diabetic even if our levels are under control.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
