What other comorbities /side effects have others had with RA?

Since being diagnosed, I’ve had rotator cuff repair, tibial tendon repair x 2 on the same ankle, a tear in my labrum on my hip which was repaired this past May, but now i need a hip replacement. I’m only 51. Should i expect many more surgeries?
I also had a subarachnoid bleed and stroke that the doctors tell me isn’t related. I’m afraid of my future and just wondering what others have gone through

I have had to have over 13 surgeries since 2014 to repair and alleviate pain. Just had another 8 weeks ago. Was curious to find out if anyone else had had to do the same.And if it makes the pain worse for you throughout you body. Does anyone have any ideas on different things to do to alleviate pain.

Has anyone experienced a a low grade temp after hernia surgery using mesh?

Has anyone experienced a a low grade temp after hernia surgery using mesh?

I had hernia repair surgery 9 days ago and have a low grade fever for a week now. I had to go off my RA meds, xzeljans xr and methotrexate for a week before and a week after surgery. Any one else experience low grade temps?

A myRAteam Member said:

For any continuous fever over 100 after surgery should trigger a call to your doctor. It is better to be sure.
