The week before I started having symptoms of LC, I was evaluated by an Ophthalmologist for cataracts and was recommended to have surgery which is scheduled for October. I have a call into their office but suspect that the Admin. Asst. may be on vacation so I may not get a call back until next week. I am wondering if anyone knows if they will no want me to be continuing with Budesonide. I have been taking 6 mg/day since the end of June and was planning to drop to 3 mg in a few weeks. My GI is pretty much letting me do what I want with it so after reading Microscopic Colitis and posts on this board, I was planning on tapering off slowly with the hope that I could come off of it around the first of the year. Has anyone had to have cataract surgery while on Budesonide? I'd be interested in hearing about your experiences. Thank-you!

Having just had two macular hole surgeries in the last 5 months, I would say that you might want to wean yourself off (so you don't have to stop cold turkey). I was unable to take ANYTHING for five days before both surgeries (that included vitamins and everything). Or you could wean it down to one every 4-5 days and then pick back up after the surgery. That's just my opinion, but I know I would not have been allowed to continue to take it.

Jari, Thank you for sharing your experiences. I have called the Practice Coordinator twice and am waiting for a call back ~ maybe she's on vacation. If I need to get off Budesonide, I think I'll push back the surgery until after the holidays. I appreciate your feedback and hope your surgeries were successful!
