Stress? Diabetes?: The stress of major surgery or undiagnosed diabetes could be the likely cause of an elevated blood sugar. I would have the reading rechecked about one month after your procedure. You may even want to purchase a home blood glucose monitor and check your own blood glucose.

If it is >300, it needs treatment even if it is temporary. See your doctor.
