My husbands surgery was dec.9 and today (dec.25) was his first day taking NO prednisone!!!! Yay!! He is feeling pretty good, but we've noticed a few things:
--Some pain while urinating (not burning, just "intense" feeling, as he puts it)
These both started several months ago, when he started 60mg of prednisone. We thought they'd go away after the surgery and/or the prednisone
So, I guess my questions are:
1. How long do the side effects of prednisone last after you taper? (he was down to 5mg 2 wks ago, then 2.5 now DONE!)
2. Did you notice either of these after your resection surgery (his was of his sigmoid colon)?
Thanks for your help!!
