I am being referred to have Bariatric Surgery. Has anyone with Scleroderma had this surgery, and if so were there any difficulties that you had related to the Scleroderma.
I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and all the meds that we take. I have been told that your body will not absorb vitamins properly, so I am worried that it will not absorb my medications properly either. The dietician and surgeons do not know about my condition and give the pat answer of your medication will be reduced once you lose the weight. But it won't as my condition is not caused by being over weight. So not sure if I should do it or not.
So just wondering if anyone else has had any type of these surgeries and if so how does it affect your Scleroderma and stuff?
