RE: [IP] Desperate need for advice (forgot to mention something)



They will be monitoring you blood glucose during surgery, especially since
you are diabetic and using the pump. I would advise you to make sure you
have a doctor included that is familiar with this situation, if not an
endocrinologist, then possibly an internist. Usually the stress of surgery
will cause an increase in your blood sugars but it is definitely an issue to
be concerned about and you should ask the surgeon to bring in the
appropriate physician for this situation.
Good luck.

 I forgot to mention that during the surgery, I am allowed to keep my pump
connected.
