My husband has been on Pred. since Feb and it got alot worse mid August. He was throwing up almost every day and his feet were a little swollen with water retention.
He's down to under 10mg of Pred. and got his first infusion of Remicade last Friday. He hasn't thrown up since Thursday night and has been feeling better. (yey)
The bad news is his feet and legs are huge with water retention since he stopped throwing up. We have to squeeze his feet and push the water up to his legs to get shoes on.
Has anyone had any experience with this and when is it time to go to the emergency room?
I've tried to do research on this and every site out there contradicts the others. Some say diuretics are good to use, others say they are harmful. The last time he mentioned it to his Dr., he wasn't too concerned and said to keep everything as it is.
After sleeping all night and keeping his feet up, his face gets really swollen.
