What was your sugar like after surgery? Since getting home I range from 85-114. No insulin or metformin. Does it get lower over time? I’m really hoping I stop getting readings over 100 (unless I’ve just eaten).

I had surgery 6/20/18. My bs lvl sits generally around 90-100 all the time.

If I eat ofc depends on carbs or sugar I still have the spike up to upper 100”s. Then after 1-2 hrs generally speaking a hour or so, I drop back to 90-100 range.

This is a normal effect even for non diabetics.

I can't figure out the American measurements but I had a checkup with full bloods three wks after my surgery and I had a perfectly normal workup. I'm averaging 5.2 for my Hb1ac which is a normal person's and my morning blood sugars are anywhere between 4.3 and 5.5 which is fantabulous. I'm off all diabetes meds now and my endo is planning to discharge me back to my GP it's so good.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!
