My mom had pulmonary hypertension and when they would put her on steroids her breathing would improve.Originally Posted by Gutmutter;2117787;
She had a great pulmonologist, I would get a referral. 3 months is too long to deal with this along with everything else.
if temporary steroids will help, then why don't they put you on them now?
Beware tho, they do increase your appetite. My mom would eat like she had just been to a party with Cheech and Chong and had the major munchies. Once she got off them, she would eat normally. And if you do take them. DO NOT stop them all at once. You have to taper off of them gradually or it causes a big problem with the production of the bodies natuaral hormones.
Good luck Gut, I hope things improve.
PWS, she will NEVER borrow my clothes as they are too "old lady for her". Fine with me. (and no, I don't dress like an 80 year old, but I don't dress like I'm 15 either. Except for the jeans.
