... years of titrating down to safely getting off the drug. I have been off the drug for almost two years (except for inhaled pulmacort twice daily). My face and neck had been extremely swollen, but since stopping the drug my face has gotten back to normal. My neck has slimmed down, but I have loose skin. It looks like a pouch under my chin. Is this something that will resolve or will it require some procedure. I want to avoid any surgery. Any ideas or information would be appreciated. Patti
