I wanted to pass on an experience and ask if anyone else had the same experience.
I had oral surgery a year and a half ago. My rheumatologist told me to stop taking MTX and mobic two weeks before the surgery to allow my immune system to work better and to control bleeding. Then when the surgery was done, the periodontist told me not to take the MTX for another two weeks in case a postoperative infection took hold.
Anyway, I was apprehensive about not having my MTX for a whole month. But I was surprised to note that I did not notice the lack of MTX. I still felt fine. I told the rheumatologist and he said I had enough in my body to carry me over. At least I gave my liver a vacation!
Has anyone else had a similar experience? I do not think that the average patient has any idea that this has to be done before surgery and they might not think to ask their rheumatologist.
