Very best of luck, I'll be thinking of you x
Thanks @Jim Lahey
I'm told I will still need basal insulin with novarapid or similar as an emergency. This however is based on no metformin nor any other diabetes med (all of which don't work on me). Metformin has been an excellent support to me for decades so returning to it without IBS would be heavenly.
Roux en y has excellent results on reducing diabetes care and research has said it can help to cure IBS and GERD of which I have both since changing my diet.
The new research stretches the ability to monitor longterm benefits and will continue to do so.
I've always benefitted on 600-800cals but my olds stomach couldnt stretch back like when I was in my teens eating that way.
This is my last attempt at resolving the heavy diabetes care I'm currently needing.
I will settle if I'm in the 15st mark bodyweight and management is reliable but not as heavy on the insulin units I currently need to have fantastic levels. My heart is starting to have to support my morbid obesity which never used to be the case in my old mobile state.
Restricted mobility due to trapped nerves and tablet side affects (dizziness and lethargic symptoms with weight gain) hasn't helped. At all.
Metformin and exercise as always been a fantastic maintenance programme. Of which I want to return too for a few years then try strict low/no carb eating again.
Good luck, I'll be thinking of you and praying for you @ickihun
Came home yesterday. Less than 2 days from operation. Thursday afternoon operation was the Roux-en-y. Even though it was questionable if any adhesions from my burst appendix. Because all incisions were mainly on my left 2 muscles I suffered very bad muscle spasms and cramp. However now much less painful.
Currently no weight loss but swellings and glucose infusion at hospital so bgs were 11-13 then 8-13.
Fbgs are 8s.
Only need novarapid for over 11.0 bgs.
Feeling very optimistic!!!
Halved basal and quartered bolus for now.
Glad to hear from you how it went and that you are recovering well. I don’t understand the insulin doses but less sounds good!
A big gentle (((hug))) for you. Rest up and get well soon xx
Welcome home @ickihun , take it slowly x
Well done @ickihun. Look after yourself whilst you recover and don’t try to run before you can walk xx
Well done, @ickihun . You will recover better at home, as long as you remember no matter how well you feel, you have had major surgery, so take your time with the getting back to activities.
Great to hear from you, have been thinking about you - onwards and upwards from now on take good care of yourself and hope you have a speedy recovery x
Will do, @Pipp
I'll try with little ones around. They distract the life out of me by youngest crying and shopping the older one's activity or lack of it. Kids!!!
Thx @Grumpy ole thing.
