Goodluck, with your surgery, and i hope alls well.
I would also plan that when you have had the surgery you take some good rest to recover, and dont go running back to things to quick.
I had to have a tumour removed from my central trachea, along with thyroid tissue because i developed swallowing problems.
However after surgery, i got loads of inflammation in my muscles and tissues, and went on to develop pnuemonia, so it sucked for me.
But we are all different, and so are our bodies,
I hope you take it easy, and i wish you loads of luck in your surgery.
Thank you for your thoughts. I didn't think about it throwing my Lupus into overdrive. I definitely need it for more than cosmetic. I'm a 36 J cup and can't exercise without discomfort...some workouts I can't do. It has caused me to have severe back pain and everything. I feel so OLD!
What kind of flare in symptoms did you personally see?
I dont know how bad your Lupus has been to your body? and also what symptoms, or organs, your Lupus has damaged.
I would say this though, If i didnt really need any surgery, and that means for cosmetic, and body matter issues, then i wouldnt be risking this at all.
Lupus is a very tricky illness, as them who live with it know. Your surgery could cause your Lupus to go into overdrive, and cause you to feel very unwell.
I know when i have had to have surgery in the past, and that has been lifesaving surgery, i have paid the price of it, and it has took my body ages, to get over it. As well as giving me a big flare off symptoms.
