V, don't be embarrassed because you held off on surgery. Things happen for whatever reason. I am a firm believer that we have to have our heads on straight when it comes to having surgery on any kind, unless it is an emergency type of situation. Yes, you have been on pred far too long & will most likely have some permanent issues as a result. Why were you never tried on any other meds besides pred? To treat a patient that long with pred is old school care, too many better meds available without the side effects. I hope you don't have a long wait to see a new gi.
