[IP] Hysterectomy effect on blood sugars?
To my female friends, medical personnel, and the partners of my female
friends (I cannot deny that you also have wonderful insight),
Just a quick question for my pumping friends. Please e-mail me your answers
directly at email @ redacted I am having a tough time making up my mind
about this and due to the sensitive nature, I do not really want a new
"thread" on this subject. Your help and compassion is always appreciated!
I have just in the last two to three years documented that my insulin
requirements change (basals and boluses) based upon if I am in my follicular
or leuteal stage of my cycle. Just as I get comfortable with this, I start
having dramatic changes in my cycles. Thinking it was an ovarian cyst, for
which I have on numerous occasions taken a shot or oral progesterone to get
me back in sync, I went to the OB/GYN. Since I am only 42 the suggestion
that I have a complete abdominal hysterectomy has really set me back! I am
in the stage of taking the sonogram report to another OB/GYN for a second
My questions are:
How long will I be hospitalized?
After the initial shake out period (I am estimating maybe three months)
of adjusting the post surgical hormone therapy, could this actually make my
blood sugar control easier for me?
I guess in my own weird way, I am trying to find some good out of all of this.
Oh by the way, I DO trust my doctors, it is just the weekend and I would like
some personal insight to satisfy my heart and mind.
