I just read your post about
your scan. I feel for you. I keep having bone fractures. RIght now I have a left fracture foot and my right hip is flared up with bursitis. At least that is qhat the MRI showed 2 weeks ago. I had to go back o the walker. IF THE WALKER WILL KEEP YY0OU FROM FALLING, PLEASE USE IT!!! SORRY about
THE CAPS, BUT i AM SERIOUS, IT IS ALOT EASIER THAN HAVING A BAD FALL.
Now I kow you are taking a dose pack. They are great. But I have been on long term steroids for close to 5 years. This is where I got into trouble. By being on them so long it has put me into having Addion's disease. I will have to be o steroids for the rest of my life. SOme low doese and right now 20 mgs. a day. The side effects of using steriods for so long are great, I have the bone fractures, my teeth are crumbing, I have the moon face, nervous and shakey, and large weigth gain. As of yesterday, I have gained over 100 pounds in the last 6 years or so.
I hope you get some relief soon. Oh, by the way, I am trying to get some wheels put on my walker, so I can travel fast and easier with it. With having chrondrits in my ribs even lifting the walker gets painful It is all a vicious circle soem days. I would love to get the walker with the wheels and seat, but I only have M'Care and I was told my co-pay would be from $60.00 to $140.00. I can buy a new one at Walmart for $100.00. So we are going to try to put the wheels o the walker I have first.
