I recently had my gallbladder removed. I am a truck driver and had to my DOT physical recertified so that I could go back to work. Upon testing my urine and blood my blood sugar read 249. The Dr flagged me from driving. I have an appt Monday to see my Family Dr. I would like to know is this common after gallbladder surgery and how long does it take to get the blood sugar back to normal?

Did you experience any other symptoms when they found elevated sugar levels.
I am not sure if sugar levels were supposed to rise after gallbladder surgery but my husband suffered from acute pancreatitis caused by migrating gallstones, also called gallstone pancreatitis.

He suffered from pain in the abdomen that radiated to his back, was nauseous and vomited.

This can be diagnosed if there is a fullness and tenderness in the upper middle region of the abdomen.

I am not applying this is your case, I am just relating to similar symptoms. Have you been ordered any other tests?

A person is more susceptible to it if they are female, fat, fair, fertile and 40-plus years of age. This is called five F’s.
