120mg??? WOW... That is really high. You must have been pretty sick! (((Hugs))) I just came off of prednisone 3 weeks ago and my face is still chubby. Everyone is different but it takes a long time with me to go away. I just started trying to get the weight back off. I put on almost 15 pounds in 3 months from this stuff.
Yeah I was up to about 160 or 140 mg of pred. through an IV as well while in the hospital. The swelling was considerably noticable more so with the IV than pill form.
My legs also swelled up about 3-4 times there normal size while in the hospital I guess mostly water weight. Has that happened to anybody else?
