Question: Can you have gastric bypass when you have systemic vasculitis (Churg Strauss Syndrome)? I am on prednisone @ 20mg bid and cytoxan @ 500 mg bid, but am otherwise stable. I have not had a flareup of the vasculitis within the last year (finally).

Answer: I would think it would be fine as your looking at 2 completely different systems being effected. Regardless the best person to ask is a surgeon that specializes in bariatrics and since most provide free consultations it really shouldn't be hard to sit down with one and have all your questions answered you might even be able to do it all online if you have problems getting around.
