Re: Ms And Gastric Bypass??
I haven't had it, but if you've developed diabetes and high BP it sounds like a good decision. From what I've read on this site and others, any kind of surgery or trauma can cause a relapse or increase in symptoms, so be prepared. Some people have had IV steroids planned in advance for after a surgery, as soon as it is safe to do so. I don't know if that would be an option for you because of your blood pressure though, and also because steroids increase appetites so much.
One thing that won't hurt is tons of rest. That would be in order after any surgery, but even more so with MS. And hopefully, the surgery won't cause any attacks, and you'll be in better health and more able to deal with MS in the future. Let us know how it goes, and good luck!
