In a week. Has anyone else here had this? Of course as soon as pancreas is removed I will be diabetic. I am terrified of the surgery, I had one diabetes edu class last week one on one with educators she was wonderful, but I failed miserably loading the syringe and even shooting the ball. My husband did great, but I failed. Diabetes terrifies me. I have cousins that are type 1,and friends both types. But honestly I know nothing about this disease. I have many other health problems. We are praying I will have plenty of healthy happy islet cells. But I've been showing signs of diabetes for a few years. Drs will keep me on insulin for 6 -12 months to let them get used to new home in the liver. I pray it's tempering, but am getting prepared mentally it will be permanent. I have severe anxiety and ptsd for a few different reasons, but mainly due to all the health problems I've had and drs that have put me through the so much, even telling me that most is in my head. Anyway, does anyone here have experience with this surgery? I know I have lots of questions about living with diabetes one being, I'm 88-95 lbs, how can I eat for diabetes yet gain weight???
