Hi There

Hows it all going?????

Sorry you couldnt find my reply.....not sure what i done with it lol

Ok.....My experience has been fantastic so far.....I have been diabetic for 38 years, never been well controlled but am fit and healthy. Since my surgery my blood sugar levels have been sooooooo much better. I have lost two and half stone so far and is still falling. I weighed 13st 7 lbs and now weigh 10st 12lbs. Just after having surgery my insulin dose went down quite rapidly and had to reduce my insulin, but this settled after days, recovery was fantastic i was up showered and waling around the next day. I suffered no infection or pain or hardly any discomfort what so ever. Due to now eating so little carbohydrate my insulin intake has gone way down, but to be honest my basal insulin (whats needed without carbohydrate is still pretty much the same.

At the end of the day i am reducing my chances of heart disease and all the other things that are related to being over weight and made worse by having diabetes.

This is the best decision i have ever made. I have not had much help from health professional either to be honest i have done this by myself. Over here in England at the hsopital where i go foe my treatment i am the first diabetic to have this surgery. So i am an experiment. To be honest i didnt even tell them i was having the surgery untill two days before the op!!!!!!!!! bit naughty i know he he he. But all is so good with me now and i do not regret for one second having the sleeve. I was back at work two weeks after surgery.

My advice would be have it done, but dont forget we are all very different, this is just my experience.

Keep in touch its so nice to talk to someone in the same position as yourself.

hi. I am at home full time and had other surgery at same time and spent 10 days in hospital.0g was up and about and driving at 20 days. Studying was hard as brain was fuzzy. One thing that is hard to get used to is not focusing on carbohydrates any more and making sure I eat lots of protein. Well worth it.

Hi,
Check your inbox - some people 'PM' or personal message.
Hope you're inside in the air-con, it's a stinker today isn't it.

Thanks for the info butterfly. Did you have a lot of trouble getting your dosage right after the surgery and how long did it take to recover enough to get back to work?


Cheers

hi.
i am an IDDM.
have been for about 30 years.
was sleeved in september.
I was on 70 units of levermir at night and about 100 in total of short acting a day.
now on 22 units morning and night of levermir and about 20 scatered throughout the day of short acting. i use a sliding scale most days as i am not eating much carbs.

I have lost a lot of weight, can move better and love being able to do more.

Hi there, i do not have an answer for you as I am a type 2 diabetic, not for much longer i am told. Hope you find an answer from someone. Have you asked Diabetes Australia, they may have some data on this.

Good luck and hope everything works out for you.

Looking forward to hearing from you again.

Hey all i am a type one diabetic and have been so for 31 years. As a
result of long term insulin usage I am now 112kg and have hovered
between 100 and 120kg sense i was 17. I am now thinking about being
sleeved but just wondered if anyone else has been through this and how
it affected there control.

cheers.
