Diagnosed with PMR in July 2015. Started on 15mg Pred and reduced to 7mg . In August 2017 diagnosed with a flare and Pred increased to 15mg. Reduced to 10mg by December but visited GP with increasing mobility difficulty. Investigation revealed severe osteoarthritis in both hips. Now need a hip replacement and operation scheduled for mid May. Surgeon wants me to reduce Pred to 5mg per day before operation.
Is there any advice about the best way to achieve this reduction?
