Hello ! I am currently in the process of lowering my A1C. I was originally scheduled for the DS on 8/2 and now rescheduled for 10/3.
What everyone above has said about healing was what I was told. Although it saddened and aggravated me to have to postpone, I know they did it with my best interest in mind.
The bariatric group suggested insulin, but my PCP prescribed Victoza injections and they have done the trick. In one month, my A1C went from 10.9 to 9.0 so I am well on my way to be below the 8 by surgery.
Even though it is an injectable, and I was TERRIFIED of dealing with the needles, it comes in pen form and sometimes I do not feel it at all !
Just be aware, there are options !
Best of luck to you and your husband !
