prednisone & fibroids

Hi - I am on a mild dose of prednisone for some dental work I had done. I am scheduled for a TAH on Wed.

I have massive fibroids. The sono tech stopped counting at 10. She said she has not more spaces to list them. What an uplifting thought...She was just trying to be funny I know.

My question is this: has anyone had experience with fibroids and prednisone?

I feel like I am about to explode. My belly is so heavy and full. I don't understand it. It feels like it has grown since Tues when I started taking the steroids. This is a small dose .75 4x day but WOW... I feel crummy. My belly feels HUGE . I just wondered if anyone else had this happen.

prednisone & fibroids



Whenever I have had to be on Prednisone (typically for severe asthma or allergies) I bloat terribly. I gain 5-10 pounds just from being on steriods.

Does your surgeon know you are on Prednisone? I ask because being on steriod medications can slow down the body's healing process and ability to fight off infection. You need to tell your doctor you are on Prednisone right away.
