The increase in my Prednisone has really, really, helped the pain! I know the risks involved with using it, but believe the benefits outweigh the risks at this point. When I'm 70 y/o, I may think differently, but for
now, I can do more things than I could when I was off of the narcotics and at a much lower dose of prednisone.
I see my pain specialist tomorrow (11-19-08) to see if he thinks I am eligible for
the interthecal pain pump.
