Surgery canceled ☹



Recommended Posts

I'm so bummed, and just need to vent. My bypass surgery was scheduled fit 5/11 so I went to my class and pre-op labs on Monday. I learned yesterday that my a1c was too high for surgery. I was really surprised it had gone so high. After I ugly cried, I made an appointment with my doctor to talk about a new medication. Has anyone else been through this?

Yes, but for a different surgery! The anesthesiologist won't put you under if it's too high. It's a safety issue. I had to get back surgery last year, and had the same issue. I cried my eyes out. After 6 years of pain, I was almost there. I begged them not to cancel it, and I'd be exactly where they needed me to be. They kept it...(had to have my tailbone removed....long story)...They won't put you under at a certain point. Here's what we did. My endo switched me to Humulin 500 (was a pain to get my insurance, this is a very concentrated formula), but did wonders for me. I also went high Protein, cut carbs to bare min....I was ready in no time. Then right before, i started in on an almost clear liquid...chicken broth, Jello, etc...they were amazed at the turnaround, and I got my surgery as scheduled! It was an intense week. I did have my tailbone removed, and while they were in there, they found a second piece that had to come out. Two bones removed...and I was like a new woman. Now onto this surgery :)

You can do this. You can do this. You can do this. (hugs)

Update: I was started on Victoza and, three months to the day, my a1c was down from 11.4 to 7.4! It's really nice to have normal daily readings again too. Best of all, surgery has been rescheduled to 8/17!! I'm so excited to see this journey through.

Began 10/16, Approved 03/17, Canceled 04/17 bc of high BSG, now bypass pending 07/17

I feel your pain. I find out my A1C this Friday and I know it's way higher than that. Just started insulin 2 weeks ago to try and lower it for this :(

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
