Who has used steriods with PFAPA?

My son was supposed to have surgery yesterday to remove tonsils and adenoids. The had to cancle because he had a PFAPA episode, but it was out of his regular schedule. They rescheduled his surgery for next week, but that is his usual schedule to get a flair-up. I was wondering if anyone has had a child with an extra flair-up and if anyone here has used steriods to abate an episode? I am thinking if he starts in with the fever before surgery, we can give him steroids and stop it so that he can have surgery.
Thoughts?
