I’m on a 5 day course of Prednisone (40mg/day) for my back. My last dose will be tomorrow (started on Monday).
Since Monday I’ve gained 2+ lbs and my face is all puffy and bright red (I feel like a puffy tomato in the sun).
I’ve actually been eating less and drinking a ton more water so I’m hoping this will come off quickly after the course of treatment is over.
Any personal experiences about how quickly the steroid weight goes away?
I’m having my hair and make up trial in a little over a week and I don’t want to be a puffy tomato for it.
