In 1998 I began taking pred. for asthma. I was on high doses and for weeks at a time. In 2003 I was diagnosed with bad hip joints.(avascular-necrosis) I had my first hip replacement. I was 45. My next hip replacement was 2006. I had back surgery in 2008... all due to steroid use. I went from 123 pounds in 1998 to 200 today. Doctors say it can't be helped steroids causes it. What can I do to get this weight off now? I'm barreled shaped... large in the chest, big and round in the belly. I went from size 8/10 to size 16/18. Help Me Please..
