Hello all, just had a minor op (knee arthroscopy) this afternoon. Readings were fine pre-op 5.5-5.7 considering no food since breakfast, but didnt have it taken again before discharge, and since I got home they are persistently rising despite me only having a low-carb cheese salad to eat since... readings each hour have been going 7.6, 7.9 and last is 8.4. I NEVER get readings like this unless I've unwarily had a pretty high carb meal without exercising first! I've been drinking loads of water to try flush it out, and shuffling up and down the stairs on my bottom n good leg every 15 mins or so to try to burn some off, but as I'm not on any medications I don't know if there's any other way to try bring it down. Just had latest HBA and it was 5.6 again, so consistent. Also I don't know at what level I should call the hospital back if it keeps on rising. I know that with illness/surgery etc levels are likely to be higher, but how high, and for how long, and what level is TOO high??? Any advice welcome please, many thanks or I'm going to have a long cold night on the staircase lol!
