Hold it: Hold the Humira (adalimumab) for 2 weeks after surgery.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Yes: now that the surgery is over her risk in taking the Humira (adalimumab) is significantly decreased. However this should be confirmed with her Rheumatologist.
