Hello I'm a diabetic & I've been experiencing high b

Patient : Hello. I'm a diabetic & I've been experiencing high blood sugars above 500 every morning for over 2-3weeks now. (I think it is due to an injury that I'll be having surgery on in 2weeks.) After about 4-5hours of feeling horrible, vomiting, diarrhea and nausea, I get my blood sugar down. I spend the rest of the day w/ a bad headache & little to no appetite. I do not have a Endocrine where I now live. Should I seek medical help now even though the worst symptoms have subsided or should I wait & go to the ER in the morning when I'm closes to DKA? I could really use IV fluids & I'm afraid it's affecting my organs.
