Well this is a smack in the head. Just received a call that my surgery was canceled because my A1C blood glucose score (I'm a type 1 diabetic) was too high. For you diabetics on here I was at 9.4 and have to be sub 7.0 This means at least another year's wait IF/WHEN I get my score down. I am hardly walking at this point so the time frame will be a challenge. The doctor's office explained that the rules on A1C have changed because there has been too much risk of post operative infections. So... I get it. Stay tuned.
