just thought i'd let you know............
After pestering my Consultant's secretary this week, and the appointmentd dept at my local hospital, I got a ancellation appointment for today :o)
I must have been in with my consultant (who i've now actually seen, normally the registrar). and guess what............... Pred to the max. 40mg for two weeks!
I'm already feeling a bit better, but i'm wondering about dropping to 35 after 1 week. I don't wanna stay on that stuff for any longer than necessary. What do you think?
I'm back to see him in 4 weeks.
