    Hi there,

    I found some information on our website that you may want to read through.  It addresses surgery and anesthesia for people living with MS and common questions/concerns that people may ask.

    Anesthesia and Surgery

    I hope your surgery goes well.  Please also know you are welcome to contact an MS Navigator at 800-344-4867 if you have any questions related to the new MS diagnosis, or if you'd like to get connected with the Society and start receiving our information.

    I had  a hernia repaired a couple years ago adn it went fine other than they had to use a local anesthesia due to some other problems I have. The big thing they worried about was my mobility. Could I get on and off the table by myself?  So for me it was not that big a deal.

    I am on Copaxone which does not have abif effect on my immune system.Depending on what you take you may want to talk to your doc.

    Yes, I have had a couple of spinal surgeries.  I didn't have any problems with the surgery, it's just hard to bounce back and try to walk again, so it didn't affect my lousy walking with MS. 

    You certainly are not going to have any problems with arm surgery.  Let us know how it turns out for you.
