|I have just been diagnosed with Graves eye disease. Am now on 60 mg of Prednisone. But because of Prednisone’s long term side effects, my ocular surgeon is recommending I look into Radiation therapy using cyberknife. |
Would like to know if anyone has ever undergone this procedure, and if so, what is the success rate in reducing the inflammation on the eye? Does it helps with remission? What side effects shoudl I expect?
