I asked my GI doc once more about
the pred and he said lets try 2 more weeks of the current meds (then we will be on it all for 2 months!). He said that some people w/ crohn's can't get off of the pred once they are on it without symptoms coming back. He mentioned like 39% of the people. I am wondering if this is the case here on the group. Also he mentioned short course. What is considered a short course?? Will a short course of pred produce the symptoms I have seen in my daughter when she was on it for leukemia like moon face, swelling, frequent urinating, mood swings, food fetishes, alot of weight gain??
