Advice & Tips: The interruption on Jan 11th was due to the upcoming CABG surgery , to allow for the immune system to be ready for the extra load, exposure to potentialrisks of infection, etc. A bit unexpectedly, despite of this interruption of now about 45 days, I have NO psoriasis and arthritis symptoms.
