New here

I am new here today and wanted to ask a question.

This past year I was diagnosed with breast cancer, did chemo, radiation, and a double mastectomy. On the day of diagnosis, the doctor told me to immediately stop my Humira injections.

Chemo kept my RA in remission and now I am on nothing and in a lot of pain, and my RA doctor won’t put me back on biologics, so he suggested a lesser strength 2 drug regiment of Hydroxychloroquine and Sulfasalazine. He wanted me to get an okay from the eye doctor to take the drugs, which I did.

Is anybody familiar with this type of treatment after cancer? Also would love to hear any suggestions or helpful hints in dealing with my RA. Thank you so much.
