Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
surgical procedure has always some risk,but they rarely happen.
so this is also common surgical procedure ,time depend upon no ans location of stone and speed of surgeon.
insulin has no additive property,so dont worry
what ur doctor has done is very ethical and logical.
by giving insulin ,there is less chance of post operative complication.
after stopping it ,he will not need to take it regularly.
its short time treatment for better surgical output
