Help needed and advise

|I have rheumatoid Disease, fibro and oesto. Recently had my thyroid removed due to cancer. I was on biological infusions monthly but had to come off due to the cancer. When I went back to the rheumatoid doctor he is now saying tat the rheumatoid is under control and he thinks oesto and fibro are the problem. I cannot believe that the cancer has cured my rheumatoid and from having infusions to going down to one tablet 150 hydroxichloraquine a day.!!!! He is putting me on 5mg of steroids and upping pain relief. I feel I need more for my rheumatoid to stop it from doing more damage and slow it down. The inflamation he says is oesto - I feel that the oesto has been brought on by the rheumatoid. He is my new rheumatoid doc - I feel let down in pain and tired with it all. Any suggestions where I go from here. It took 5 yeas to find out I had rheumatoid and 3 and a half years of biopsys for the cancer!!!

Many thanks for listening and sorry for the rant

Did you ask if the drugs you were given after your cancer surgery was holding the RA at bay?

Your Rheumatologist will know what you have been prescribed & won't want to double up. He/she says it's under control ...not cured.

Just ask why?
