I would contact your rheumy team to make absolutely sure. Good luck with the op. X

Hi Grady

You won't have to stop your azathrioprine. But you'll better ask your Rheumy. I wish you all the best with your operation!

I remained on azathioprine and prednisolone when I had a foot operation last year. I did check specifically with all the team involved including the anaesthetist. The only caveat was - bring your own medications with you for the short stay in hospital.
