I had blood work done just a week or two ago and had to have it done again cuz I am pre-op.

My a1c went from 6.0 to 5.9
Tryglicerides from 275 to 264

I HAVE been exercising way more but is this kind of change possible so fast? Both times I had blood work done, it was fasting blood work.

Yup, sure can, in fact it can swing like that hourly. I did the math on the .1% A1c change as James pointed out, and it actually equals 3.56 BG points give or take. Not really that much.
Your Trigs (and I hope your doctor has explained these are high) can fluctuate just as much. As long as both keep going down, that’s the main thing.

Looking at your A1c (only) your A1c is "not influenced by daily fluctuations in the blood glucose concentration but reflect the average glucose levels over the prior six to eight weeks" ~ http://www.emedicinehealth.com/hemoglobin_a1c...

And if you look at it it is only a .1% decrease in your A1c. That does not seem that much of a change at all to me.

Regarding the Trigs, I don't know much about those at all.

All I know is that your numbers are going the "right way"
