I never seen a post regarding this. I have had PMR for five years. I have reduced down to 1mg/day but I have never been without some pain in shoulders, wrists, hips and buttocks.
Have gained an additional 50lbs from steriods - Previously I still needed to lose 50 lbs. I am considering the gastric sleeve to assist with the weight loss as I am 5'2, 64 years old. High BMI (Body Mass Index) to classify me as Morbidly obese.
I was scheduled for surgery in four days, cleared with blood work and EKG. I cancelled and am so fearful of PMR returning with full force. I cannot get a direct answer from rhumy or primary doctors.
Can anyone had this surgery with a diagnosis of PMR? Could really use some direction.
