Was thinking. I had the endoscopy and it showed some gastritis. Surgeon suggested to come of my arthritis meds. Now I am in so much pain, stiff and joints locking up. Now if I get the Gastric Sleeve I will have a smaller stomach so it maybe easy to damage by taking any arthrites meds. My arthrites could be real bad in July seeing an rheumatologist, then only solution is going be an inflammatory, which can't take. Should I just forget surgery and feel no pain and irritate stomach because need take arthrites meds. Not sure what is best for my health. I know if lose weight won't be as bad on my joints. Any ideals what to do? Does anyone have arthritis or do you autoimmune disease or both? Did you have surgery how are you doing?

I have severe arthritis in my knees, and arthritis in my hands and back, and I just had gastric bypass 2 months ago. I know I will never be able to take NSAIDS again. I had cortisone injections in noth knees, which helped tremendously. I also use Diclofenac cream, and there may be meds you can take which don't irritate the pouch lining. I thought long and hard about surgery because I'd be giving up my meds. Losing weight has helped my joints. It is good you're thinking about this now. Good luck with whatever you choose.

When arthiritis has chewed your joints, sure you have less pain with less weight but they never are going to be before "Art" reared his Ugly little head. God never gives you a "Do Over" with joints, no matter where they are in the body This morning even my fingertip joints hurt, if they didn't I would know I was dead and someone forgot to tell ME.
Doctor asked me :Well Frustr8, my dear, where do YOU hurt today? "
My answer " Where Do I Not?" Been Steady- Dating "Art" since I was 25, getting close to 50 years ago. He is Omnipresent! Yep, big word for Big Bother!

I have arthritis in my knees and right hip. I was really worried about not being able to take meds for it after RNY. The first few months post-op I got cortisone injections in my hip (it's worse than my knees), but then I stopped - the pain just wasn't as bad anymore once I lost all that weight. The damage that was done is permanent, but not carrying around 200 extra pounds made a huge difference. I walk with a slight limp due to the damage, but it's just not all that painful anymore.

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
