I have a parastomal hernia and a second trying to make itself known. So on 1/8/14 I will be having yet another surgery.


I just had a revision done on my ileostomy on Oct. 30, and haven't quite healed from that one now this.


I am glad that during all this my sugar still is good A1c only 5.4% because I have to watch everything. I can not have all the good things I am used to having fruits and veggies are a no no. I can not have fiber any more.


I am allowed all the white products, rice, noodles, potatoes etc... all the stuff we as diabetes are told to stay away from. So I have to pick very carefully as to not raise my sugars. Dealing with more than one illness is not a good thing as many of us know.


I do have to have 3 protein shakes everyday so I am now using a product called Total Soy it is a powder and only has 16 carbs per serving not too bad. Life is what it is and I have to make the best out of it.


I am on here daily just don't post much, I do pray for you all. Debbie

I love hearing how you're making the most of a difficult situation and have been able to continue managing blood sugar through everything. Best wishes for the surgery. ~Lynn @Glucerna

I sometimes wish I only had diabetes to deal with - it would make my life much more manageable.
