I'm sure this really is a tough decision for you. I'm not sure what I would do. I agree with you that it takes a lot more time to bounce back after things since we have Sclero. Maybe your rheumatologist will be able to shed some light and guidance on the issue tomorrow. Sometimes when trying to make a big decision, I get out the pen and paper and literally make a Pro and Con list. Seeing it on paper helps me weight it out.
Let us know how that appt. goes tomorrow.

Wow, that is tough decision to make. I do hope your rheumatologist can give you some input that will help you make the proper decision for you. From what I have read, it does seem to be a pretty safe procedure....but as Sweet and others have said, having scleroderma does tend to complicate things a bit. Please keep us posted on what you decide and how you are doing.

The others are absolutely right when they say that any kind of surgical procedure is slightly tougher to get over with sclero and I have to say that I'm no exception.
I really wish you well with this and truly hope it works for you.
