I don't have answers for you except that you should probably list your meds in your post.
People on prednisone sometimes (with Dr.'s instruction) will up their dose for some period before/during or after the surgery. There is a post about
this in Lupus Resources (by Lynnwood: Flare Care). [Link in my signature]
Anyway . . . posting your meds will help you get more info on this.
Sorry you have to have surgery sis!
