Metformin rebound?

Last year I had a fasting BS of 101. I did some reading and had almost all the signs of metabolic syndrome and asked to be put on Metformin and was taking 500mg XR once a day. I am 5'4" and was somewhere between 150-160lbs. I WAS ONLY ON IT ONE YEAR.

At 3 months fasting BS went up to 105, 6 months up to 110, 9 months finally down at 89. A1C has been good the whole time. I feel like this drug was needed because it took away 70% of the sugar cravings I had and I lost a little over 10 pounds, so my body craving sugar must have been something off...

I recently had gallbladder surgery and went off the Metformin 2 days prior due to possibility of more diahhrea from the surgery, dr. said that was ok. After 2 days the day of surgery fasting BS was 129, dr. said she wasn't concerned.

I thought I lost 10 lbs. and my sugar cravings didn't come back so maybe I wouldn't need to go back on it. Bought myself a machine and random BS was 92. It's now 4 weeks off meds and fasting BS this morning 139!!! I'm waiting til the weekend to test again so there's a longer fasting time, more time awake before testing.

Why would my BS go up so much higher than before I started this drug, and after only 1 year on it?? I was hoping not to go back on this. Now I'm not sure if I should start if it stays high after another week or 2 or wait longer.
Any comments/help is greatly appreciated.
