Diagnosed After Surgery

I was diagnosed after surgery. The doctor told me that I was Type 2 Diabetic after having a partial hysterectomy. I suspected maybe the summer before when I was getting shots to get rid of fibroids. I watched my mother go through a lot of problems growing up since she was a diabetic and I knew the basics of what I had to do to keep myself healthy. It is now close to 6 years since my diagnosis and I do my best to do what is necessary to do what must be done.

    Hi 21u9lls- Thank you for sharing your story. I’m sure it was a scary time to be in the hospital for surgery and then to get another diagnosis on top of it all. I’m glad to hear that you are still making your best effort 6 years later. Take care, Meryl Krochmal, RD CDE Community Moderator.
