swelling from prednisone
I am new to the healthboards. At the begining of this month, I was hospitalized with acute renal failure. I have been on 50mg of prednisone daily, hopefully tappering here soon among 7 other medications, including cytoxan. I am experiencing extreme water retention and have been placed on a prescription to help relieve the swelling along with a potassium supplement. Has anyone else experienced such swelling and what have you done to help reduce it? My blood pressure is high, so elevating my feet and legs causes other issues. Any suggestions? The skin on my feet is stretched so much, it hurts just to touch the skin.
thanks for listening
