5 days ago I had an ovarian cyst removed...Biopsy results are not available yet. Hypoglycemia is out of control. Thoughts?

5 days ago I had an ovarian cyst removed...Biopsy results are not available yet. Hypoglycemia is out of control. Thoughts?

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more

There: There are many things to consider here. One is your age, also do you have children? What was your doctor's recommendation? Have you seen a gyn/oncologist? If not you should do so for a different opinion/perspective. Honestly I can't make a recommendation based on the limited info. I have, therefore I encourage you to get a second opinion.
