PF and Prednisone

Posted by mohez on 5/28/99 at 00:00 (007295)

Sorry everyone, but it seems that taking prednisone actually works on
PF. I could not find Scott's info on prednisone, I am 5 year sufferer
surgery seems the only alternative, but i would like to try prednisone,
please enlighten me.

Mohez,
What else have you tried? Surgery should be the LAST alternative.

I have had PF for 10 years. Recently while bowling, the pain was so bad I thought I would have to give up bowling,which I have enjoyed for 25 years. Went to my Family Physician and he gave me a Prednisone shot. I was totally pain free for 1 day only, but where he gave the shot hurt for a few days.
