So sorry to hear this!! ☹️ did they tell you when they would check it again or how long they’re postponing?

I’m so sorry for your postponement! It may be like my ulcers and hiatal hernia, the docs just want the condition stabilized before they shock your body further with surgery. Luckily you are heading in the right direction with surgery:)

Im sorry this is happening. I would be upset too, but try to look at it as a chance to practice your post surgery habits ahead of time. Maybe you can even lose a little weight pre surgery which is just less you have to lose later.

So got a call they are postponing my surgery because of my a1c being at 11.5 people suck

Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

My husband's A1c is 13 and his surgeon won't even think about surgery until he gets it below 9. Mine was 6.9 (I cut out ALL sugar for 3 months and it took it from 8.4 to 6.9 so my doctor is thrilled and I was approved). My husband's doctor told him it's because a high A1c means the body is unstable, and it puts more stress on other organs. Doing a major surgery with the body like that is a recipe for disaster. Did you ever get it rechecked? Did you get to have your surgery yet?

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
