I'm having my surgery on my hip in the morning.  It's my 4th surgery since June 29th.  I have a labrum tear, and bone fragments the dr is going to attempt to fix.  Wish me luck, please that this surgery goes better than my last one.  I am scared to death that the surgery is going to make my Lupus worse.  My RA is having them give me IV'd solumedrol to help and I have chemotherapy cytoxan next week.  Hopefully everything goes well.

Thank you ladies! I am really nervous this surgery will make my lupus worse. I only have 3 months left of chemotherapy Cytoxan left. I'm worried this will make the lupus worse adn I'll end up w/more. This is my 18th surgery in 12 years and my 4th since last June. My body is tired and needs a break from hospital, dr's, and chemotherapy.

thanks,
Skye

Surgery went well. I'm in a lot more pain that I expected. The dr was able to fix the labrum tear. He also found synovitis, and had to remove it from the joint as well. He said between the labrum tear and synovitis he's surprised I was able to walk. I'm confused though, I googled synovitis and found it happens in RA patient not Lupus. Does anyone have any experience w/this?
