I have questions regarding MTX. My surgery is on Wednesday, Feb 13, and I am currently taking 7.5 mg MTX on Saturdays. My surgeon said to stop taking it the week before and the week following surgery. He said this will aid in the healing processing. Has anyone else been told this?
Also, I heard from another patient on oral MTX that it thins your blood. Is this also true? The surgeon is having me stop taking Nabumetone a week prior due to blood thinning effects.
I take MTX for a cutaneous t-cell lymphoma (this rare disease makes for an overactive immune system).
