Hi everyone, my daughter has been told that for het own good,it would be best if she stayed on prednisilone long term.
Which is what she is doing at the moment,I think she takes 3 a day at the moment,she was on 20 a day when she had pnumonia.
The only problem is,she has brittle bones already,she fractured her ankle when she slipped off of a mat at the gym,and fractured her wrist really easily.
We were told when she was younger that this could happen as a result of het having to take steroids for severe asthma.
She does take lots of other meds but it is the long term steroids that concern her.
She has is due to have a brain,spine and heart scan,to check that the swelling hasn't come back.
Steroids have been a godsend to her,without them ,I don't know how she would manage.
My mum has RA and alps,also other inflammatory diseases and steroids caused her osteoparosis and heart disease.
Can't win ,if she doesn't take them she could have lots of damage,but if she. takes them,she could have loads of damage.Thanks Sandy
