I was DX with diabetes 3 years after a whipple surgery for pancreatic cancer. I started with pills different kinds and have been on insulin for about 1 1/2 yrs? Time flies!! My A1C has been going up for the past year. Guess the pancreas that is left isn't helping me much. I end up giving myself 2 shots of Lantus a day and now 2 units of Humalog at each Now I think I'm accepting that for me, "shooting up" is gonna be a way of life. Sometimes I do feel sorry for myself, but the truth is I am lucky to be alive after 2 bouts with pancreatic cancer, one lung surgery and lung cancer -9 yrs in recovery from cancer. I just sometimes HATE having to take so many shots-even the pens get old after awhile. I'm glas some people DO manage to DC insulin and live a more normal life.
