Femoral nerve. I'm still not pain free and my thigh muscle is still weak. I'm a very active person but I still cannot put weight on my right leg for more than 3 hrs. How much more if the prednisone is suggested?
NJ724; This would all be up to your doctor they use this to help you get through the worst of it,And then use something else; Because it's better to not be on steroids any longer than necessary. So they use this very sparingly. The best is to check with the doctor and see if they want you on it any longer while you are getting stronger. But you really don't want to be on the prednisone any longer than needed you well just have to ask your doctor next week and see if another week of it would be okay being the condition you are in or what else well work as well.
