Trouble is the surgeon's office sends out these strict instructions to PLEASE not contact them prior to your appointment, because they just don't have time to deal with issues till you see the surgeon. They suggest you go to your local GP and if he considers it necessary he should contact the surgeon's office, or go to your nearest ER if you have any... (5 replies)

... Medrol is basically the same thing as prednisone - it's a steroid. I've taken both for a variety of things over the years but mostly because I get Eustachian tube swelling and have a lot of problems with my ears.
