Has anyone else been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease such as SLE (lupus) or RA (rheumatoid arthritis) etc over the months/years since hip replacement? I was diagnosed 4 years after surgery and I’m pretty sure it’s unrelated however I was 50 when diagnosed which is a little atypical so I wanted to see if the group has had any similar experiences. Or worsening of the autoimmune disease? Not putting it out there for anyone to have second thoughts about having surgery. I’m treated for my disorder and running like before, so it’s not an issue but I’ve been meaning to put the question out there to the group.
By the way, 7 years post anterior THA next month and still running!
