I was on 60 mg of prednisone for 2 days gradually lowering for 2 weeks. I didn't necessarily gain a bunch of weight maybe 5 lbs at the most..but I was so bloated I looked 50 lbs heavier. I looked pregnant even after just waking up. Now I've been off it for almost 3 months the bloating went away after a couple weeks. Now all of a sudden I go to bed one night and the same bloating came back. Again I looked pregnant this isn't normal bloating where you look a lil extra this is extreme bloating where you look pregnant and feel so full u wana puke. I feel the same bloating for over a week now and I haven't taken the steroids in 2.5 months! Is this possible for the bloating to come back like that? What can u do for the bloating it is so frustrating.
In my case I was on predisone for 6 years, I was weened off. I been off them 6 months. Yes the bloating comes back. 1 day a week I'm not bloated, other 6 days I look about 7 months preg. I'm 54 years old I get ask by cashiers when my child is due. I no longer tell them I'm not . Lol I just give them a due date and tell them my 8 year old grandson is so excited he's going to be older than his soon to be uncle. But to answer ur question unfortunately yes it comes back. At least on me it has. Hope this helps you.
