Hi all, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis about a year ago. I need the fat removed from the hips and thighs to lighten the weight on my arthritic hips. My leg knees and feet are so awful. Whenever I try to walk it feels like my feet are too heavy and I can’t balance my body weight. This morning I woke and my ankles were still hurting badly. I’m considering to undergo liposuction from Windsor, Ontario ( http://www.breastandtummytuck.com/procedures/liposuction/ ) to suck out the extra fat from my hips and thighs. But I want to know if I can get a cosmetic surgery with rheumatoid arthritis. So I’m afraid if I’ll feel discomfort after the surgery. Does anyone know about this? Please share.
