My orthopedic surgeon said NO knee replacement surgery while I am bleeding from UC.
Has anyone here ever had such elective surgery - knee replacement, hip, etc. with UC. I have been treating UC with Canasa for 31 days - not a lot of help. Seeing NP on Wednesday and want to find out if others here have had surgery and what the criteria would be for surgery - remission??
I need the knee surgery but do not want to risk my life with bleeding (which I have daily), etc and having to take Cumadin for a while.
