I was supposed to be on Metformin, but I had gotten off the wagon with taking it and could not get back on because it was making me too sick. About 2 months before surgery, I started taking Tradjenta, which did not make me sick at all. I stopped taking it the night before surgery.
While I was in the hospital, my numbers stayed in the 140's, so my dr said I would need to take a dose of my meds every other day for a while. I didn't do that when I first got home because I wasn't sure how to take it, since I wasn't supposed to swallow pills. When I saw my pcp a week later, my blood sugars had been normal since I got home, so she told me to not bother taking the meds at all.
About three weeks ago, I had my first postop blood work, and my A1c was a 6 without meds, and that includes about 6 weeks of preop numbers too. My pcp is confident that my A1c will be even lower the next time we check it, so I'm still on no meds.
It really does vary from person to person, but for most type 2's weight loss, paired with the way we as sleevers tend to eat post op, is usually a recipe for much better numbers.
