Abbey was on steroids for quite a long time due to her "allergies" and I expressed my fears and was told it was a very low dosage and not to be concerned at all. When I came on cavalier talk and started to read about sm I took her off of them--before he surgery the neurologist had her on gabapentin and omeprazole and it wasn't cutting it so he added the steroids back again and again I expressed my fear with him and he said the same thing--very low dosage. Not sure if I read what dosage yours was on but it might be something to ask also.
