I cannot comment on your current situation with just limited facts about your medical condition. I can, however, tell you that any inflammatory condition such as your appendix issue, surgery, or an infection can cause blood sugars to get out of control. It would seem logical that when your appendix finally came out your body started to heal and with than your blood sugars started to come down. I would suggest you keep a good log of daily blood sugars with pre and post-meal readings and hopefully you and your health care team can decide on a good course of therapy for you.
