Surprise! You have diabetes and get to keep your kidney stones a little longer.
I was scheduled for surgery to remove kidney stones on August 9th. I was supposed to get a tube placement on August 4th. I was as ready as I could be.
I had been told I needed to get tested for diabetes because my blood sugar was high, but I planned to wait until after surgery. One medical issue at a time, you know?
On August 3rd, I was told I could not be cleared for surgery by the urologist or hospital (I can't remember who), but I could see what my PC recommended. I was at work and don't drive, so I took off early and got an Uber.
I was not cleared for surgery. Instead, I was prescribed medication to control my diabetes and have begun to test my blood sugar daily.
