We just got home yesterday afternoon. I did great! While it wasn't fun having the prednisone make me hungry for everything in sight, and I now have the puffy face, it did make it to where I could eat and enjoy myself. I did have two episodes of D during the week, but that probably had more to do with WHAT I ate. LOL I haven't done that many sit down nice meals on a vacation in probably a decade (normally I want to do take out and eat it in our hotel room, where I feel "safer" if I get sick). That was really the best I've felt with Crohn's in 10 years. Amazing.
But back to reality! LOL I went down to 25 mg of pred this morning (from 30 mg), now I get to deal with the few days of feeling like crap from coming down. But I need to get off this stuff. Going to call my family doc tomorrow and see about getting in to see him. Hopefully he can help me with a good tapering schedule for the rest of the way, and about getting a new better GI doc.
Just wanted to say hello to everyone! :)
