My nurse had me run a temp basal once I couldn't drink anything...I ran 80% until right before the surgery, then I turned it off and let my normal basals start.
In the morning I was 170 I believe, I did do a small correction to keep me from going over 200.
Before the procedure I was down to 140, they did give me IV sedation...I don't remember a thing from the procedure. Anyway, my BG was 370 afterwards. He told me the I.V was like gatorade...should have known then I would be high afterwards! I did a correction, and it came down just fine. Other then being high right after surgery, my BGs were fine the rest of the time.
I basically ate secure shakes, cream of wheat, pudding, and jello for an entire week. You can definitely eat pudding.....I even had Coldstone Icecream for lunch(LOL I never have stuff like that, no way would I pass up the chance)!!! I did not need any pain meds. I just took Ibuprofen and my antibiotics(four a day).
It really isn't too bad. You will be so happy once it is over with!
Obviously we are totally different people but I will let my cde know what you did with basals and see what she says about what I should do. Sounds like you handled it really well. I wouldn't have guessed that the iv is like gatorade...I guess I should take that into account the day of.
Ha ha coldstone. Nice. We don't have any good ice cream places around here-- no Coldstone, no DQ-- it really kills me. I'll just have my mom get the half-gallon containers at the grocery store :-D
Also good to know that you only needed the Ibuprofin and antibiotics. Hopefully I will be as lucky!
Thanks for replying!
