Maybe that's why I felt so awful after I had my tubes tied last fall. After coming out of the anesthetic my joints were so stiff and so sore I wanted to scream. I'm not taking prednisone, nor was I then (I take enbrel and/or mtx for rheumatoid arthritis), but I truly wish I had had something like prednisone then. The doctors gave me pain killers (for the surgery, obviously), but they barely did a whole lot for the joint issues. It took weeks for me to get back to normal. I think I'll remember this the next time I have to "under" for something. I hope you feel better soon.
