I have been told I need a hernia repair operation involving general anaesthetic. I am presently taking 9mg Prednisolone daily and wonder if it is safe to have the operation. Has anyone had experience of this? I have had Temporal Arteritis since March 2016 and was down to 2mg Prednisolone daily when I had a flare-up and the dose was increased to 20mg but now down to 9mg. I'd be grateful for any advice.
