barbvh Posted September 14, 2009 Share Posted September 14, 2009 Today was THE RESULTS SHOW from the PET/CT I had last week. Thankfully I am still NED for cancer, but the inflamation that was almost completely gone in June after a 6 week round of prednisone is back and just as bad as before. SO it's back on prednisone again. This time for 3 months at a lower dose (20mg) and then another CT. If things look good then they will start a taper they said would be 6 months to 1 year. I have a new script for Ambien as the insomnia was really bad. The last round gave me high blood pressure and other side effects. I am telling myself to just make prednisone my friend. It did help my arthritis and back pain a lot:) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
