Hello! Your site is fantastic, the information you share. I've learned so much in just the day I've been on it. I'm 52, diagnosed with GCA in February. My question to you right now....Has anyone had surgery while on the prednisone? This will be laser eye surgery to try and regain sight in an eye I've been blind in due to cataracts for years now. I was diagnosed with the GCA condition in Feb and if god forbid it ever hits my only seeing eye, it could be life altering. So best to up my chances and try and get both eyes working again. But didn't know if anyone had any advice or thumbs up / down on surgery when on Prednisone at range of 15mg? Again, I truly value all I'm reading here! I can relate to so much of it and helps everything fall into place and make sense! Sorry you all are dealing with it too, but what a great good these forums are.
