High Blood sugar levels 3 wks high after back fusion surgery (TLIF)
My mother is post 3 weeks after back surgery. She is a 30+ year diabetic. Her pain is much less and she is no longer on pain medication. We are concerned that her glucose number are much higher than usual. She eats well but still they are much much higher than before. Her PCP modified her 1 week Trulicity to a higher dose starting next week. We need to wait and see if it helps. Has anyone else experienced high glucose levels after surgery over 3 weeks later? If so, when does it start coming down?
