Donna, I feel bad for you.  I know some of what you are going through.  My mom lived with us for 3 1/2 yrs.  Watched her health go down.  But it did help when she went on Hospice - the medical help we got at home for her.  Then with all your own issues, it must be really hard at times.  My prayers still go up for you.

Hello folks, have not been here in a while. It is nice to see a few new pages with Sharon, Janis, Donna, Kathy, Linda and Harold. Hello to ALL of you. [smile] 

Donna it is especially nice to hear from you. I hope your Mum will be ok and you can stay healthy too.

I had knee replacement surgery on Sept 3, but am bouncing back very well. My other knee will be done in the late spring. I have been T1 for 68 years now, and still have very good diabetes health. 

Janis, I learned something new while in the hospital. Several hours after surgery my BG was sky high, and no amount of insulin would bring it down. It was initially in the 170-315 range and stayed very high for about 42 hours. I have never used so much insulin. Then it came crashing down and I had so much insulin on board, so I ate like crazy. The diabetes specialist at the hospital told me that after surgery a diabetic's body can produce its own steroids to protect the body. I researched this when I got home and found this is true. My body did adjust though, and my BG is back to normal...no more problems. Had you heard this before?

Richard, nice to hear from you here.  I see more of you on FB than here anymore.  Seems like no one is posting here any more.  Well, very few.

Hi Richard,
I'm not familiar with the post-surgery change you mentioned.  You said you researched it and found it to be true.  Where did you research it?  I'd like to check that out.
Janis

Hi Janis, here is the link you requested. If you look at the third paragraph, you will see the statement:

"Your body naturally makes steroids by itself. When your body is under stress (caused by infection or surgery, for example) it makes extra steroids."

http://familydoctor.org/familydoctor/en/drugs-procedures-devices/prescription-medicines/how-to-stop-steroid-medicines-safely.html

Those steroids produced by my own body really did a number on me. The diabetes specialist at the hospital was my initial source.

Thanks, Richard.
After surgery, it is very common to have a stubbornly high blood glucose level.  That is because glucose levels climb as a reaction the stress of the surgery, certain medications and the stress of healing. Sounds like the increased steroid production is a piece of that puzzle as well.
Thanks,
Janis

OK, I just remembered that my bg's were terribly high after my double by-pass.  But I am still upset that the hospitalist didn't give me back my pump.  Oh, well, it is done and over but now I understand a little more why they were so high.  Thanks for the post Richard.
