Assuming you didn't need emergency surgery, did you just run out of medication options? I know many of you got surgery years ago when there were not as many options. Did steroids fail to work?
Steroids are still working for me, but they're starting to do a number on my bones (plus all the other fun stuff like weight gain, stretch marks, etc.). I think I have another stress fracture in my foot now, too, which has me really upset since I'm a hiker and (used to be) a big runner. While reading through all the stories on the internet forums, I feel like most people are sicker than me when they get to the point of surgery, so I just thought I would ask this question. Sorry if this has already been asked a lot. Thanks!
