I have fractured my pelvis in 3 places - fell off a pavement in Spain. I am due to reduce my pred from 8 to 7 this week-end and asked the Rheumy today whether he thought this was wise. I certainly do not want a flare plus the pain I am in. His reply was yes carry on reducing. Fractures will take up to 12 weeks to heal. What do members of the forum think. I am taking 6 Solpadol a day for the pain.
