Lara in Colo Posted September 4, 2012 Share Posted September 4, 2012 My daughter has surgery tomorrow afternoon (and by afternoon I mean 3pm). She cannot eat after 7am. Even if I protein load her, she she will be sick. I am not worried about before the surgery, but during recovery----- when they give her juice and crackers ------ she'll probably barf. How will they know if it's from the surgery or her blood sugar?? Does anyone have experience with this??? Should I ask them to give her a slow glucose drip---or will that LOWER her blood sugar you think???? She is less of a reactive hypoglycemic and more of a "uses all food up too fast and is low" type. But she will be sick and faint after the surgery. Would giving her milk in recovery be a bad idea? Lara Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
