    Hiya.

    I have to have surgery on my leg in the new year - can I stay on SS leading up to it and after it?

    I will have to go under general anaesthesia but the surgery is just an overnight job.

    If anyone knows anything, it would be really helpful.

    I think you should really speak to your doctor about this.

    If you are having surgery that involves general anesthetic you have to come off SS I'm afraid hun! I had surgery this year (only a day surgery!) and CD insists you come off SS for 3 months after to recover fully. I think you have to come off 2 weeks before surgery to but I could be slightly out on that (could be less) you'll have to check with your CDC.
    Sorry hun!:eek:

    Oh nooooooo!!! I thought there might be some rules about it but that's sooooo loooooong :(

    I'll definitely be speaking with my CDC and my doc when I'm back from my holidays, but thought i'd just see what people might know on here.

    I'm so sorry I was the one to have to tell you that because I thought exactly the same when it happened to me. I'm so sorry!:(
