Hi everyone, I haven't posted in quite a while..Brief update, I have GCA now for 1yr and 10 mo, started at 60mg and finally down to 6mg. Doing good on 6 and hoping to get off this sometime Jan or Feb depending how things goes. Reason for writing, I just found out that my daughter in law's father had GCA and it has been 14 yrs since with no flares. He told me he started on 80mg and within 6 months he weened himself off Pred ...couldn't take the side effects. He had the temple biopsy and had GCA. I was so shocked to hear this and how he could get off so quickly. I thought I would share and therefore give hope for all of us...There is a light at the end of this tunnel. Any thoughts on how this can be in remission so quickly are welcome. Bert0403
