Well I'm with you. I refused to be treated by pred, my doc said this was the only way. so I finaly gave up said ok... was on it for 3 months.. now I suffer from arthritis that was caused by using pred. I normaly weight 110 or less (depending on the cd) and I blew up to 150lbs but I'm only 5'1 1/2. Now the docs wont treat me with pred anymore (didn't even work for the arthritis) now whenever I go for my er visit (every 1-2 months) I refuse, they listen.
So don't feel alone. Yes I'm not working now, been 2 years so I have the chance to sit around and try to get better..I'm still doing this.. would love to go back to work some day soon
xoxox hope everyone is having a pain free day!
This is very true. I live in Canada(Montreal) and 3 different doctors had put me on pred... the last time I was on it for 3 months and still getting flar up and going to the er..when finaly my GI decided to go with Remicade.
They will try allot of meds before going to something very $$$
I hope you find a doc that will help you get what you need. Like I say the only person who knows you best and what is usualy best for you, is you! Take care xoxo
