Hi Pea,
Thank you.
How are you. How is your pain pump working?

You do need to taper but I would ask your dr. I just don't remember. You shouldn't have much trouble after only a month.

Take care.

Hi Jay,

My Dr. told me I could drop from a 10 mg. of Prednisone to a 7 for a week and then back down to a five after that. If you continue to flare then call your Dr.

My pump has been a life saver Jay! No more pain except where my feet have bone spurs. Gone are the days of that horrible back pain. It's so easy to go have it filled too. I have been able to do things that I had given up on ever doing again. Wish I would have done it years earlier.

Hope you are feeling better by now.

Hi possi,
My doctor told me to go for 7.5 mg after a month from 10 mg. He said he will tell about the schedule later.

Hi Pea,

My doctor told me to go for 7.5 mg after a month from 10 mg. He said he will tell about the schedule later. It is since 16 days, I have not felt any relief. I am wondering whether should I continue Pred.
I am eager to know how you fill pain pump. Whether the filler point is kept outside?

Jay
