Here is My Question:
I have to have surgery for a uterine polyp that is causing inflammation in the uterine lining. I was going to have it last week but then had to do a round of solumedrol. I am going back on DMT soon - waiting for Betaseron to arrive. The surgery uses monitored anesthesia - between twilight and general.
We usually wait at least a month after stopping steroids before processing with elective surgery.
Betaseron will not interfere with surgery or recovery.
