Sjogren's syndrome and surgery

on 6/7/21 5:46 am

Hello everyone. I once went to get a consultation with a weight loss surgeon who told me that because I have Sjogren's syndrome I could not get weight loss surgery because I would not be able to keep food down. I have been reading some of the other stories here and it seems that some people with Sjogren's have had surgery. Does anyone out there have Sjogren's with RA, fibromyalgia and type 2 diabetes? I am wondering if because of the combo of diseases I have I cannot have the surgery. I wish you all sucess in your weight loss journey I know it is even harder when you have pain all the time with these diseases.

I have sjogrens, small fiber neuropathy in the torso, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, high cholestral and I had RNY on Monday. Sjogrens never came up as a reason and I take plaquenal for it. Check with another surgeon.
