Hmm, if you're not well, you should get on the cancellation list and see if you can get things under control before your trip. There is still time before the end of the year...
Of course you could try to take the budesonide and hope for the best, but if it doesn't work, yes, you will need pred, but where does that really leave you? Well for the time you're on it, then what? Maybe you should consider the humira, get things under control and have a long-term plan. If you're still in decent shape, maybe you can bypass the steroids, or just get away with the budesonide or uceris.
My dog was on pred, and thankfully, while you don't want them on it long-term, they do not seem to suffer the long-term consequences people do - according to my vet. Luckily I got my dog on atopica for his skin and he didn't need pred long-term.
Hoping you have good luck finding a solution before your trip!
