Let your doctor know it happened repeatedly. Keep us posted. Praying for you.
The ER doc said some people just pass out for no reason? Really?
You CAN have hypoglycemia even if you've never been diabetic. I've never been diabetic and my blood sugar has dropped as low as 37 (that's the lowest it's ever been when I've tested it). I would definitely see another doctor, hopefully one who has a clue.
Please note: I AM NOT A DOCTOR. If you want medical advice, talk to your doctor. Whatever I post, there is probably some surgeon or other health care provider somewhere that disagrees with me. If you want to know what your surgeon thinks, then ask him or her. Check out my blog.

The ER doctor needs to go back to school. I was hypoglycemic for 20 years prior to surgery, had reactive hypoglycemia for 2 years just prior to surgery. I got it while pregnant and was told it would go away after I gave birth. It never did. The lowest I tested was 40 and the nurse at my job at the time wasn't sure how i was still working. I have passed out from it and learned to control it by diet. It is manageable. I'd go to your regular pcp and explain what is happening. Pick up a blood monitor and check to see what your sugar levels are when you start feeling the way you describe. You may also want to check blood pressure. With many of us we run low after surgery and I know I get light headed and ready to pass out at times when mine dips very low.
Sounds like reactive hypoglycemia....I have been as low as 30 with my only symptom being a stronger than normal heart beat.
Time for a glucose monitor for you.
