So after a week and a half of prednisone and no relief, I've gained five lbs (hoping it's water retention) since I tried to eat the world. nono
I've been put on an anti-acid, which has helped the rings of fire in my stomach. I still have the intestinal pain.   In fact, today walking is a challenge...even my back hurts. It's also a challenge to go to the bathroom, even though I'm sick every time I go. And then some days I go a million times a day. There's on happy medium like before. My belly also hurts if pressed on.
My gallbladder is working at fifty eight percent. Can't take it out. And my barium CT came back normal except for a cyst on my right ovary. It's been there for years, literally.
 My doctor has me going back in three weeks. He thinks the wellbutrin may help and thinks maybe stress is making me flare.
I'm frustrated. Any ideas?

Wow!((((((((((((((( Toodles)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) seem to be having a real rough time...As to the prednisone question...yeah, there is some water retention involved. After getting off the steroids, you might find that you lose some weight (I did, even just tapering down...been on them for over 3 years now). However, some people don't...

It might be helpful to let your doc know how miserable you feel...I get the feeling from you post that you really can't last 3 weeks feeling like this...I'm not sure I could...I hope and pray you can find relief soon...
