1. My lump is definitely result of steroids.
2. My bloods are normal and so I am to reduce from 25 to 20 for a month and then to 15 of Pred for a further month. Thereafter 2.5 reduction. In light of comments on tapering read here, I questioned this and raised my concern regarding possible future flare up, however Dr was very firm on this point.
3. No more blood tests and no more Dr appointments - just phone reviews and drop down all being well.
4. I've managed to lose 6llbs (combination of smaller amount of carbs and slimming world).
Well, let's see how it goes! Bring it on!
