Hello, Shirley! How are you?

Prednisone isn't actually an anti-inflammatory, the FDA considers it a steroid class medication. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, weight gain and fluid retention.

However, before stopping it and having your surgery, you should double check with your doctor. It may still be too close for you to have the surgery.

Are you on any other medications?
