    Question addison's and prostate cancer

    i experienced an addison crisis as a result of a radical prostectomy last march. i almost died as a result of misdiagnoses. i spent 4 months in the hospital recovering and lost over 100 pounds. i experienced a second addison crisis in october as a result of a bout with pnemonia. i just discovered this board and hoping to get a better grip on my health problems. i am currently taking 10 mg of predisone in the morning and 10 mg in the afternoon. i am also take 0.1mg of fludrocortisone in the morning. any help with doctors in my area or advice would be appreciated

    I lost over 60 pounds when I was sick and was diagnosed. I am on cortisone 25 mg a day and 1 florinef pill. You probably need to take more pills when your sick to get over it.
