    Hi I have had an operation to take my sacral nerve battery out of my back because it no longer works weds afternoon my blood sugars were great
    and I was allowed home the same day but it's set my ibs off just had to take Buscopan tabs again I hope they will not increase my blood sugar.

    Feel a bit bruised from op just wondering how long it will take to recover from having it done.

    That is really hard to say. There are a few factors involved, type of anaesthesia, type of pain relief, size of wound, anxiety and healing time etc. You have had a necessary procedure done which means that the benefit outweighed the risk of temporary higher bg levels. I suggest that you test regularly and make a special note of the time your levels return to pre op readings and try not to stress about the higher readings.
    Get well soon.

    Priorities... Right now, getting better is more important that raised bloodsugars. They're not here to stay, after all. Hope you feel better soon!
