I am now 17, but back when I was 11 I was diagnosed with Langerhans cell histiocytosis. For my first round of chemotherapy, I was prescribed with 60mg per day of prednisone for 6 or so weeks. I had the typical weight gain even on chemotherapy, and other side effects. I am curious about the long term effects of what I am told was a very high doseage for my age. I have also heard about Chushings Syndrome and was wondering if this can persist after six years of being off the drug because I have many of the symptoms. I know that some of these might be regular or attributed to long term effects of the chemotherapy itself.
