Doz, how long have you been on prednisone and what dose? I was prednisone dependent for two years prior to my operation. That drug does horrible things to your body. My GI doctor calls it the best, worse drug. It gave me osteoporosis and high blood glucose levels not to mention my blood pressure was elevated too. I am certain if I didn't have my operation last June that I wouldn't be alive to see 2011.
7 years..ish. Dosage varied at the start from 20-60mg mainly. The last two years I was able to get off Prednisone for a short period of time but its been 5-10mg doses. Im fairly certain my bone density is shot but I never opted to take the test. Its just going to cause more worry about
a situation I have no control over. I do take all sorts of multivitamins and supplements daily and have been on track to get surgery soonish as well.
I also plan on taking GH + test when Im all healed to make up for some of the damage prednisone has caused.
I did get sick when I was on Imuran and Prednisone combined for some reason. I just remembered that.
