I'm scheduled for a temporal biopsy on August 6 and the pre-op nurse told me I'd need to stop taking the Prednisone one week before the procedure. My surgeon wants to biopsy both sides and since I'm still not feeling well, suggested we do it in the hospital operating room with "happy gas" so I'd be more comfortable (instead of her office). I'm at 20 mg and can't imagine stopping cold turkey like that.
What is your experience with this situation? I see my GP tomorrow for updated blood test results and will discuss this with her. Thoughts?
Thanks! Kitty from Gig Harbor, WA
