In 2008 I had the 3 hour glucose tolerance test done and passed..lol glad I studied! April 1 2010, I had my C5-C6 fused, but my pre-op blood work said I was diabetic? hmm So I ended up being in the hospital a week instead of overnight due to some complications from having quitting smoking and the albuterol treatment they gave me in the recovery room to bring up the phlegm in my lungs. I coughed nearly 3 1/2 hrs non stop in my room, making throat raw, and unable to swallow anything except Jello or pudding for three days. So I was being test 4 times a day, and my sugar was usually around 110 accept one time they said it was like 440. I said wouldn't I like be in a coma or something? 20 min later it was 120 I think. Long story short after I got out of the hospital that was it the dr never called to follow up. Fast forward to yesterday. I had gone in for fasting cholesterol and blood sugar, and yup sugar was 127 oops I didn't study enough, and my cholesterol while it had gone down 3 points since the last time I had it checked, was still 57 points too high, and my tris were well into the 300's. How can a meat and taters person eat veggies when I can't? I am meeting with a dietitian next week so hopefully she can help.
