cornea transplant. Now I have more joint pain, some new joint pain. Do you think from being off Arava? I was told to stay off Arava for 2 wks after transplant. Curious Mind
Naturally being off Arava/leflunomide is responsible for your joint pain, both new and old. Thank goodness you'll soon be back on it again. Since you sign as "Curious Mind," I'll tell you something else that's interesting... when my husband went through chemo and radiation, his RA swollen joints all returned to normal. It was amazing! Many months later, long after discontinuing the chemo and the radiation, the swelling slowly returned. Now you know another method of getting rid of RA's swollen joints!
