I have SLE lupus with lupus arthritis. I take plaquenil and viox-and carbatrol to control seizures. I am "in-between" rheumies now, as my last one was horrible and new one cant see me until August.

I have to have a subtotal hysterectomy soon-and it is a 3 month recovery period. I have a toddler that I stay home with-and I will be able to get help from my mom and hubby for the first month or so...but after that I am on my own.

Does anyone here have experience with going thru surgery with Lupus? I am extremely worried that this will set off the flare of all flares for me, and make the recovery a horrible process.

Any help is appreciated-
