I had a partial hysterectomy because of loss of blood during my chycle and years later i was diagnosed with lupus. I would like to know was the lupus present prior to the hysterectomy and is it possible the lupus was triggered by the hysterectomy?
This is my opion ands mine alone yet I believe Lupus stays dormant for years before you are DX. Then you have some unusal stess in your life and boom there it shows up.My Doctors have told me to try and stay away from too much stress (ya right) so he gave me medication so stress doesn't bother my lupus too much.
