Sounds terrible. Please tell me you're consulting or seeing a doctor.

I would say that no intake for 5 days is past the point of "bad enough".  Especially being so new post op, and diabetic.  Hopefully you have been in touch by now.  If not, get to the ER.  You are seriously dehydrated and need IV fluids,

The lower abdominal cramping is a telltale sign of dehydration ( I know from first hand experience). You need to seek medical attention stat! do not call and wait for an answer. Please get yourself to the nearest ER. Your body is telling you that it is in desperate need of fluids and electrolytes.

thanks everyone,  I did go to my endocrinologist and she said if It do not begin taking fluids go to the Er so here I am at 3 am calling 911, I am to seek and light headed to drive,  My BP is 88/52.  Blood sugar  are still somewhat high 160 or so but she explained when the body is understress it produces cortisal whic is recognized in your body and treated as sugar.  Thanks again. Tis all happens so fast.
