Just wanted to let everyone know that I talked to my insurance company and my surgeon's office this afternoon. I'm approved! I have to attend a nutritional seminar on Friday at 8AM, and, if I understood correctly, I'll get my surgery date at the end of the seminar. YAY for me!
I live an hour and (roughly) 15 minutes away from my surgeon's office, so I'm going to go down the night before and stay the night with my in-laws. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep Thursday night!
Today was Day Two of the pre-op diet, and it's going okay. Heather gave me the best tip: Use an immersion blender! It works sooo much better than the regular blender works. The regular blender makes too much foam for me or Hubby. I'm having no blood sugar problems today, but I didn't take one of my meds after dinner last night, and I didn't take my insulin last night. My blood sugar was 106 at bedtime, so I wasn't comfortable taking it.
I talked to my primary care physician this afternoon, too. He told me to stop taking my Glucovance (5-500 mg) altogether. I'm to decrease my insulin from 24 units of Lantus to 18 units at night. If I'm still encountering problems, I'm to decrease the units by another three units until I'm not having a problem any more. I see him next Tuesday, so I'll talk to him again about the Glucovance, since the Metformin portion of the pill also treats my PCOS.
Woo hoo! So, I may be joining you sooner than I expected! YAY for me (I had to say it again).
