As a person with diabetes, your risks for complications are higher. Although problems don't happen very often, it's more likely for you to have infections, or to take longer to recover.
For these reasons, it's important for you to go to all of your follow-up appointments after the surgery. You should also call your healthcare providers if you have any of the symptoms of high or low blood sugar we discussed earlier, or symptoms of possible complications.
Infections can be a serious problem, especially for people with diabetes. If your doctor thinks you might have an infection, you may need medicine and treatment immediately.
Because there are risks to this surgery, you should talk to your healthcare team if something doesn't feel right.
