I had an umbilical hernia repair in August of 2010. I've recently had issues with the mesh pulling and met with a general surgeon as well as plastic surgeon to have this repaired. My frame is small, 5'1, 135 lbs. and I also have diastasis recti from pregnancy. Does RA diagnosis increase issues during surgery or healing after a FTT and hernia repair. I'm not keen on surgery but if I can get both fixed at the same time, I'd like to but I don't want to jeopardize my health for my vanity.
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hernia and FTT?

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hernia and FTT
Certain medicines, such as prednisone, may increase the risk of wound healing complicaitons.
Otherwise, adding a TT to a hernia repair will add little in the way of risk.
All the best.
