Hi Sharen, I'm so happy to hear some good news. I don't have BS issuesd so I don't know about your question. I do know that alot of people here really have problems tapering off the pred. Hopfully between your experience and your doctors you can go about it a little differently so it isn't the problem it has been. On the other Hand pred. and HUGE slice of cake LOL. That sounds like another problem on the way! I'm just jealous because I would be afraid to eat a huge peice of cake.
That's wonderful that you got to visit with your family. Even if you complained a little I'm sure it meant alot to you. I wish my folks could visit me but it's a long way to go for them at their age and my dad's health. I'm glad you were able to cut back on the pred too. I hope you continue to feel good.
In His Grip
