I recently have been schudles for thyroid surgery. I have sjogrens and fibromyalgia and I really think I am a little scared about the surgery. The affect that it will have on my body with these to other issues. Any suggestions or information would really be appericated. Don't really know what to expect. Please help!!!!
I have fibromyalgia and symptoms of sjogrens though dr said no point in doing the lip biopsy as I was already diagnosed with atypical connective tissue disease. I have had quite a few surgeries, the most recent was back surgery.
It seems to take a little longer for recovery. I am more tired after surgery and it hurts a little longer. I don't like to take pain meds so that probably adds to the pain lingering too.
I take advantage of the down time and don't push it too much as to avoid a flair-up of the fibro.
You should be fine. The worst part is the anticipation of having the surgery.
