... misprescribed high dose of prednisone when I was 23. I just had surgery on my R elbow at the Mayo Clinic. They did a phenomenal job,after my physicians here in NM told me there was nothing that they could do. I have to do my knees next, which is a huge bummer, but I am glad there are other people out there willing to voice their experience and strength
Hello. What an unfortunate experience. You sound like you finally got your help. I believe very strongly in the Mayo Clinic. They do wonderful things there. Did you know that prednisone is what founded the Clinic? Ironic.
Just out of curiosity, how high of a dose did they give you and for how long? We frequently check my joints for necrosis. I am unable to wean off as I have a recurrent disease.
I appreciate your sharing this. Hope your recovery is swift. Karen
