I'm hoping since so many of you have experience with pred you can help me, this is my first time. I was on 40 mg. for 9 days, tapered to 20 for 9 days - tomorrow Dr. wants me to go to 10 mg for 4 days, then 5 for 5 days, then 5 every other day for 10...does this sound normal, anything I should expect?
Yesterday I went for sigmoidoscopy (sorry if that is spelled wrong). Dr. took many biopicies, and also took 2 polyps out. I just had a colonoscopy in Decemeber and (different dr.) took 3 out. Do they grow that fast or did the first doc miss?
Will get results when I go back to Dr. next Wednesday...
