It just might be your body's cue that it needs sleep to restore itself after the surgery, which certainly stresses your body. It seems you've already ruled out high BG's as the probable cause. I would get sleepy after experiencing a really low BG too. Good that you'll be talking to your endo…let us know what he/she says about it.

Hmmm, my first thought was high numbers. Could you possible be spiking or dropping very fast? Sometimes those things can make you sleepy. They may happen so fast you don't catch them on your meter.

Howdy DD!
That is great the pump is working well for you! I would have no ideas for why you'd be so sleepy other than that neverlow suggested. At first I thought that your surgery was 2 days ago and I would have guessed that the anesthetic was still working out of your system, but on re-reading your post I see it was about 2 wks ago and I doubt anesthesia hangs arount thal long.

Something just occurred to me that I heard somewhere,that sleep can be restorative after surgery, so it could be that at work, or have you been able to sleep at night? There is evidence that surgery interrupts one's circadian rythnms. (fascintaing article on this here ~ http://surgiprep.wordpress.com/2008/01/11/doe... )

Praying that this next surgery will be your final surgery and that everything is complete with this next one. Praying for a safe surgery and a speedy recovery
