I just found out on thursday at my ent appointment i keep getting infections because i need my tonsils out. The ent won't even consider it until i get the okay from my rheumatologist. Does anybody know if i will have to stop my actemra for a few months to have it? I got no clue
Hello Anglia, I had been having my teeth worked on and had to stop the Actemra till I healed pretty good. So they don't want you to even have a flu shot our anything without asking the doctor. I sure hope you are doing alright.
I had surgery three times while on actemra. The first one the ortho dr required me to get off of it for three months. When i started back it wad like starting all over again. My dedementation rate went to 111. The second surgery my RA dr talked to the ortho dr and told her its more dangerous to
stop than to keep me on the drug. The third surgery the neuro surgeon wouldnt operate unless i was off for 6 weeks. I just got back on it this week
