prednisone and surgery

After a visit to ER this morning, I am on prednisone for 10 days because of back pain. I saw that surgery can be an issue, but mine is not until Nov. 30. Am I ok that far out or do I need to call doc asap? Been waiting so long for surgery...

I would call, just to be sure. Prednisone lowers your immunity, but I don't know how long that effect can last. Best wishes!!

Re: prednisone and surgery

Prednisone is a nasty medication. I use to take 60mgs every day for an auto immune disease. I ended up having a rare adverse reaction where my large intestine ruptured.

I'm thinking since you are on it for only 10 days, you maybe ok....but I would still check with your Dr to be on the safe side.
