I am an RN with 35 years of health care experience. One explanation for the change in blood glucose levels is the stress you endured related to your surgical procedure. If the surgeon prescribed an IV solution with dextrose (glucose), that could have also affected your blood glucose level. Your HgbA1c (test of blood sugar levels over 12 weeks' time) result of 5.6 is very slightly elevated. Do you have a previous A1c level available for comparison?
Congratulations on your weight loss. If you have any questions regarding whether further weight loss is needed, here's the link to an article on calculating your current BMI (body mass index) and the BMI at your ideal weight.
Best wishes to you. Let me know how this goes for you.

"When I say itís you I like, Iím talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.Ē Mr. Rogers
