I guess to some of us nov/dec of 2010 doesn't seem so far away...only 15 months or so! lol Butterflake, who was in a medically induced coma for months, just had her final bit of corrective/reconstruction surgery a few weeks ago and is still battling flares and complications. She happens to live within a few miles from me so we talk regularly
I've been moderator here for 7 years and can't recall any but those 2 instances of people deciding on doing a surgery. I know there are several kinds, and with your longer history of "quiet" lupus your experience will likely be much different.
Please let us know what you decide and how it goes.
