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.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
