I tried to put it off but I'm doing the prednisone pack for 6 days. After 6 weeks of NSAIDs it seems I've hit a plateau on improvements. We're hoping it will finally calm down the inflammation and swelling in the knees and feet/ankles. The knees were a little better but now my ankles and feet are swollen so much it's hard to get socks and shoes over them. By the end of the day they're too painful to walk on......
Any takers on a race using "walkers" immediately after my last Roid pill????? I'd love to see how much a difference they make!!
I'll have to ask my Race Officials at the TT's if I get to keep a new PR if I set one this summer????
Side story---last weekend my wife dropped me off at the front door to Walmart so I could pick up item I had to have early the next day. It was after 9pm and I could hardly walk due to the pain in my knees and feet (I had already done too much on them for the day)-but I pressed on. As I entered the automatic doors off to my left sat an electric cart that was fully charged and ready for use. I just couldn't make myself use it---just like tossing aside the walkers, crutches, cane etc. Wouldn't you know what I was looking for was at the very back of the store. After shuffling about 1/2 way towards the back I sure wished I had jumped on that thing!!! You don't realize how big those darn stores can be until you taking baby steps with each one being in sharp pain!!
