I have a surgery on my shoulder coming up next month and will be knocked out for a few hours. As I am fairly new to being a diabetic, I have never stumbled across a post or discussion on this, so hopefully everyone could shed some light on my situation. Obviously I know that the doctors will be aware of the situation, I just want to know what precautions the take during the operation? Do they check my BG every 20 min and deliver glucose/insulin as needed? Or what happens if I start to crash during the Op?
If any of you guys and gals out there can answer or add to the discussion, please do!
