I've been seeing a Respiratory Consultant for a few weeks to try and find out why i have an on going productive cough. X ray and CT scan were all clear. In the last week my asthma has been bad and my GP put me on 30mg Pred a day for 5 days. I went back to see my Consultant tonight. Despite me feeling unwell, he said he couldn't hear any wheezing etc. He X rayed me again and my chest is clear. However, he thinks it would be good to keep me on steroids for another 16 days alongside a course of anti bs. I am happy with this as I know my peak flow is not where it should be at the moment. BUT, will my weight change much? I'm going to be on 30mg for 4 days, tapering down the dose by 10mg every 4 days. I have a big birthday and a special frock that I need to be able to get into in just under 4 weeks time. I know health comes first, but will I gain obvious weight around my face and middle on this dose.?
