Infection Risk?

Infection Risk?

I’m on actemra and I know getting a piercing is a terrible idea but I really want one. Has anyone gotten a piercing on actemra? Did you get an infection?

I have been on Actemra for a few years now and it has helped a lot. I have very few flare ups and no side effects.

I had 2 surgeries will on Actemra and didn't get an infection. But if you have MRIs or other scans they will make you remove them. I now have a plate and 5 screws in my foot . Do they count. You may be getting hardware in your future.
