Check up day

I had my monthly appointment with the specialist today. She did a thorough check over and announced the meds are working so she is pleased with my progress. She lowered the dose again, and put me on something else which should help too. As much as I hate meds, I hate pain even worse, so I will take what is necessary.

I was shocked to learn I’d gained even more weight, despite trying really REALLY hard to resist temptations and eat everything in sight. (And it confirmed my home scale is not working, LOL) I will be even more careful of what I eat and hope it helps…. Regardless I know the moon face and sausage toes will stay until I’m done with this prednisone.

  1. Glad to hear that you are coming along nicely. Weight gain with Prednisone is practically unavoidable. Maybe it will help that the doctor reduced your dose.
