I asked pulmonary registrar if I could come off prednisolone, she said I would have to have a blood test first to see if its ok for me to stop taking it. I am now down to 5mg per day and 3 stone heavier.
I had a phone call yesterday from the hospital and they want me to attend one of the wards to have the blood test and I must be there at 8.30am next Wednesday and not to take my usual dose of prednisolone. Has anyone had to have this blood test? And why can't I go to the usual phlebotomists for the blood test? Where is the blood taken from?
Sorry so many questions, just a bit confused.
