Most importantly, you're doctor should be advising you. From my own personal experience, you have to taper down the dosage; it's not a medication that you can just stop taking. You're body has to be weaned off of it. Good luck!!
Speak to your surgeon ASAP! I couldn't use steroids (Prednisone is a steroid) for 6-8 weeks prior to my total knee replacement. It's thins your blood causing more bleeding than someone who is not taking it. Good luck with your surgery!
