Hi, I had surgery when I did not know that I had HCV, I was given a lot of pain medication, anesthesia without knowing that my liver was damaged.
The surgery affected me for a very long time, please be careful. I was in a brain fog for a year. My husband said I never recovered. You are too valuable to take chances with your life. If I had known that I had HCV back then I would not have had the surgery.
Another member on here had surgery, he did not know that he had HCV and his liver decompensated.
I am not a doctor just a fellow patient who has been there
My best to you
Be sure to diagnose what, if anything might be wrong with you before you proceed with bariatric surgery. An ex's sister had Lupus and she had a hard time finding a doctor to follow her. Back then Gastric Bypass was contraindicated with lupus. I remember her labs were a problem and she had to 'doctor shop" until she found someone who was not so particular. She was a nurse so I am sure she figured something out.
