I may be having an elective surgery that doesn't have anything to do with my CD, but my doc is a little concerned about me being on the mp-6. He says he may want me to go off them completely before having surgery and then continue them after surgery or he may just have me stay on the mp6 but take much higher doses of IV antibiotics during surgery.
My question: Has anyone here had any type of surgery while on mp-6 and how did it go? Did the doc take you off mp6 first, keep you on it, give higher doses of antibiotics?
Thanks in advance!
